Work Type



8.25 in (width) x 12.75 in (height)


Floor-length pleated dress featuring panels of solid fabric down the sides of the columnar skirt and sleeveless bodice, as well as across the shoulders and around the neckline, which features a keyhole opening below. The solid fabric forms a waistband with some sort of embellishment at the front. The sketch includes a small view of the back of the dress that appears to indicate that the back bodice is not pleated. The sketch also includes four fabric swatches that include green chiffon, green satin, and a what is possibly a block-printed fabric in shades of brown.
