Content: Image includes small sketch of back of garment. Note the economical use of lines in this simple but beautiful drawing! The cape and hat, and even the model's face and hair, are suggested with a few deft pen and brush strokes.
Content: This simply-cut design with 3-layered "epaulets" at the shoulders looks like something that would have been worn by an army or navy officer in the 17- or 1800s. The addition of the hat gives the ensemble a Napoleonic feel.
Content: Written on image: "designed by Pearl Alexander" "André 570 - 7th Ave. New York City Dec. 23, 1940"
