A modernist-style dress, with a high neck, narrow waist and sleeves which are puffed out slightly towards the top. The decoration of the piece is complemented by embroidered lace madeof silk cord forming floral motifs spread over the sleeves, back and waistband, made of the same cloth as the dress. 
The women of this period used to wear tight corsets to shape their waists, thereby giving a curved outline to their figures.
