The woman on the top left is shown facing away from the viewer with a white arrow ornament, white feathers and pearls in her hair, a necklace with a square pendant and a white, off the shoulder bodice with bow details on the upper sleeves. The woman on the bottom left is also shown turned away from the viewer and wears a blue wide-brimmed bonnet with white feathers and blue bows, a white lace kerchief collar, fastened with a round brooch, and a striped yellow dress with tiered ruffle sleeves and a narrow ruffle three-quarters down of the length of the skirt, with the wide ruffle below that is bias-cut.
