Description

Black crepe dress with a calf-length skirt, short sleeves, and shirred printed chiffon fabric hanging from the center of the waist and in bands across the armholes, which form a Queen Anne neckline. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of a matching cape featuring a yoke of the same shirred chiffon fabric. The color of the print is not indicated, but the sketch appears to be made with green, blue, and purple graphite.
