2007.43.2


This dress is made of black panne velvet; the decoration on the surface of the fabric has been pressed or steamed in. The collar stands up and is bound with black satin; the arms, the hem, and the side slits are also bound in black satin. The dress fastens in the front and to the proper right with two elaborate frog closures, and several snaps that are hidden from view, under the black satin piping that trims the opening. The skirt is slit on both sides.

Used: Mary Chinn
