Herbert Sondheim, Inc
5.25 in (width) x 8.25 in (height)
Floral printed evening dress of unknown material featuring thin shoulder straps, a sweetheart neckline with a cluster of flowers at the center of the chest, and a floor-length skirt with slot seams that release at the top and whale boning in the back only, which is also slightly longer than the front of the skirt. Sketch also includes a small view of the back of the dress and depicts the model wearing a hair wreath of field flowers, which are presumably the same type of flowers found on the bodice.
