This simple, knee-hugging dress has a bodice of double-pleated glass batiste with wide, round neckline and short sleeves. It closes in the back with six self-covered buttons. A rep ribbon with bow is mounted above the waist at the back. The waist-length jacket is straight and has an oversized shawl collar. It is ornamentally covered with buttoned white glass batiste and the edges are traced in rep ribbon. The jacket has a double-breasted closure and the sleeves are three-quarter length. In collection lists the ensemble appears under the Tailleurs category and was presented by the model known as France. This piece was formerly in the possession of the US-American actress Olivia de Havilland, who celebrated one of her greatest successes in 1939 with the film Gone with the Wind, which was based on a novel by Margaret Mitchell (1900-1949).
