Description
Women's black velvet suit featuring a calf-length dress and long-sleeved jacket with what appears to be quilted motifs made from padded cords and velvet covered weights on each shoulder. Sketch also includes a small view of the dress worn without the jacket, which shows a belted waist, short sleeves, and a pleated white organdie collar with what appears to be two additional pleated collars in orange and jade green below (possibly with velvet edging).
