Content: Includes small sketch of back of garment.
Content: Written on image: "Faille silk jabot and [panel] down front." "Designed by Pearl Alexander" "ANDRE' 570 - 7th Ave. New York City Feb. 17, 1941"
Content: "Faille" is a fabric with crosswise-running flat ribs. A "jabot" is a cascade of ruffled material. Note here how the artist has suggested the faille's texture with close-spaced parallel lines in contrast to the screen-applied dotted shading on the rest of the coat.
