Navy crepe evening dress featuring a floor-length skirt, sweetheart neckline, buttons on the proper left torso, and bands of what appears to be shirred or pleated fabric that form the upper bodice and shoulder straps. A loose panel (presumably connected to the shoulder) drapes down the proper left side. Sketch (in color) also includes a small view of the back of the dress and depicts the model holding a lit cigarette.
