Silk open-skirt dress with matching peticot. The dress has a robe and matching underskirt. It is a pale mauve-pink silk of English manufactrure woven with a very small spot and with small flral sprays in various colours. The bodice's front edges meet and its centre back is lightly boned. The skirt front edges are bound with white silk ribbon. The tapes and loops make a 'polonaise' style skirt.
