Description
Printed chiffon evening dress with a crossed sleeveless bodice, black velvet bows on each shoulder, and four slightly shirred bands of black velvet near the bottom of the floor-length skirt. Sketch (in color) also includes a partial view of the back of the dress that shows a bare upper torso and a black velvet belt that ties at the back of the waist and is not seen in the front. Although the color of the print is not indicated, the sketch appears to be made with pink and blue graphite.
