Presumably created for a Saks Fifth Avenue advertisement, this illustration depicts two women wearing sleeveless trapeze dresses by unknown designers. The dress on the left is paired with a polka-dotted headscarf and features a Peter Pan collar, front placket with three large buttons, and a section of wide pleats across the front center. The dress on the right has a large, multi-toned diamond pattern and flat pointed collar.
