Child's dress made in cream-colored wool, printed with a red and green geometric pattern. The neck and sleeve hems are finished with green silk damask piping. The sleeves are heavily gathered and form large "poofs." The bodice is deeply gathered vertically, set with a small self-fabric placket in front. The dress closes at center back with hooks and eyes, and is edged with three vertically placed rosettes of green silk.
