Modernist-style dress made up of body, which simulates a short jacket, and a tulle-shaped skirt. The body has a high neck, embroidered by hand with small flowers. The false flaps and the cuffs also have applied flowers and passamenterie. The geometric design of the jacquard fabric is typically Catalan, as it follows the schemes of the cages that propagated by the textile theorists Miquel Travaglia and Pau Rodón, based on the diagrammatic drawing.
