Women's ensemble featuring a calf-length black crepe dress and a long-sleeved box coat with a floral print and black facing. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a small view of the back of the coat showing fullness, as well as front and back views of the dress worn without the coat that show short sleeves and four large applique flower motifs on the front with smaller motifs on the back. (The color of the flower print and appliques is not indicated, but the sketch appears to use red graphite.) Model is depicted wearing a wide-brimmed hat.
