Description
There are three bathing dresses in black and white with no models. The outfit on top is horizontal. It consists of a dark gray short dress with a sailor collar, short sleeves, and a belt, as well as matching knee length cropped pants. White bands decorate at the sleeves, the center front on each side of the buttons, and the hem of the dress, and the hem of the pants as well. The outfit on the bottom left consists of a gray dress with wide lapels, short sleeves, and matching cropped pants. The dress is edged with a narrow white stripe, with bows at the side of the waist and the hem of the dress. A horizontal stripe is visible under the dress down the center front, as if the upper dress is drawn back by the bow at the waist. The outfit on the bottom right consists of a gray dress with a narrow standing collar, short sleeves, a belt, and matching cropped pants. The center front has small pleats down the bodice, and the front, hems, and sleeves have a twining vine floral pattern along the edges.
