This is a drawing depicting a woman wearing a navy and white faille evening dress, with the shoulders entirely naked. The back is also partially naked, and a prominent ribbon is tied. The designer made use of contrasting colours: the front of the skirt, the band and the lower part of the ribbon are navy, while the bodice, the back of the dress and the upper part of the ribbon are white. A brooch made of diamond and rubies, is fastened on the band. To the right, a smaller drawing shows the front of the dress. The dress was designed in London and was in a folder marked 'Marjorie Field Rhoades' and 'Matita'. The design was created using pencil and watercolour, the bodycolour is on paper.
