Black taffeta evening dress featuring a strapless bodice with a thin pink cuff, pink flowers on the proper left hip, and a floor-length hooped skirt with shirring around a cord down the front center. Sketch (in color) also includes a partial view of a long black net coat with gold stars embroidered all over, which is presumably worn with the dress.
