Description

Black satin dress with a belted waist, calf-length skirt, fabric that comes from under the armholes and goes around the neck, red jeweled buttons along the proper left side of the bodice, and long sleeves that become very wide at the center. Sketch (in partial color) also includes partial views of a long beige coat with a Persian lamb lapel, presumably meant to be worn with the dress. Model is depicted wearing a bumper hat.
