Description

Women's black wool suit with a long sleeved bolero jacket and knee-length flared skirt with cut-out applique motifs that are arranged to appear to come out of two rounded hip pockets. The jacket is worn over a black and white printed top with cut-out motifs appliqued around the neckline. Sketch (in color) depicts the model wearing a small brimmed hat. (Although the sketch uses red, yellow, and blue graphite the color the print and appliques, the text indicates that these are incorrect colors.)
