1937 – 1938
9 in (width) x 11.75 in (height)
Medieval inspired dress of patterned fabric featuring a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves with puffed shoulders, and a floor-length full skirt with train. The patterned fabric features a solid border that also extends down the center front of the skirt and bodice. The dress is worn with a long veil attached to a heart shaped hat known as a "hennin", which appears to be made from the same patterned fabric as the dress. The sketch includes a view of what appears to be a dress panel attached on a separate sheet of paper, possibly to demonstrate how it would look in the back.
