Flattering tailoring with gores down sides of waist and hips. 3/4 length sleeves with cuffs. Protruding pockets have a drape effect of fabric on the front skirt leading into the pocket. The pocket opening becomes a decorative piece of tucked fabric and continues around the back of the skirt (see close-ups). Opening is eight small fabric buttons up front, bound button holes. Decorative tucked line of fabric down front skirt and one tucked line on each side of skirt descending at an angle toward the sides (see close-ups). Unlined. Labels read, “Nettie Rosenstein” and “Rike’s, Dayton, Ohio “. Belt loops, but not original to dress.
