Description

White crossbar piqué evening dress with a floor-length full skirt, wide shoulder straps, gores and darts on the bodice, and multicolor flowers on the front chest. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of the back of the dress, as well as front and back views of a fitted jacket of light navy piqué fabric, which is presumably meant to be worn with the dress.
