The inner layer is plain batiste, the middle is lace trimmed with pin tucks and the outer is a confection of pin-tucked batiste and ribbon festooned lace insertion, cut on the bias to form a handkerchief hem effect and all topped off with a deep flounce of lace.
The skirt incorporates a pocket in the seam and fastens with a draw string at the waist. The design is flat at the front and gathered at the back.
