Description

Calf-length dress with a gored skirt that transitions into a bodice and sleeves that appear to be made from small sections of fabric that are connected with visible topstitching. The dress also features a belted waist, scalloped neckline, and three-quarter length loose sleeves. The sketch includes a small swatch of navy blue woolen fabric from the French fabric house Rodier, which is presumably the material used to make this dress.
