Dress - robe and matching underskirt. Silk woven in alternating broad stripes of yellow with narrow pink stripes and white woven flower pattern, and white with woven stripes and flowers. The robe has a sack-back and the bodice has robings. Between the yellow stripe is a pinkish cream stripe with three tobine or cannelle stripes. On the yellow stripe there is a self-coloured floral trail and on the cream stripe small daisy like flowers. All these floral details are achieved by an interruption of the ground weave.
