Description

Pale blue jersey dinner dress with long sleeves and a long pleated panel that is stitched across the center of the chest and extends down the floor-length skirt to produce fullness in the front. The panel also includes a small pleated flange at the top. Sketch (in color) depicts the model holding a lit cigarette and wearing what appears to be matching blue feathers in her hair.
