Sleeveless evening dress featuring a floor-length flared skirt and contrasting trim around the waistline and neckline, which extends down to form a geometric shape across the front bodice. The trim (presumably ribbon) is weaved into the dress around the hips and ties into a long bow at the front. The sketch features additional views of the dress, including a back view that shows a deep pyramidal neckline. Fashion designer Natacha Rambova hired Orrick to produce this sketch and many others.
