The museum’s notes - "Evening dress of black silk satin, bodice with sailor collar trimmed with silk embroidery and applied satin rouleaux, sleeves similarly decorated, skirt with peaked points at each hip.”

This dress extends the late pre-war columnar silhouette and blouson bodice into the war years with whimsical notes.
