An open skirt falls in a narrow A line below with simple edge to edge closing on the front and a shaped central back panel to suggest a train. Badly marked by decay of metal sections of the covered buttons. Believed to have been designed and possibly made by either Violet or Daisy Anderson (see DC 022).
