A woman's fancy dress of white figured silk with a serpentine, brocaded trail design of alternating floral bands of pinks and maroon. The flowers are separated by rows of small buds rising from stems. Each stem is on a figured lace pattern band. The silk is brocaded on a ribbed ground with part of the rib forming flush subsidiary design. The fabric was originally made into a sack back and petticoat, open at the front with elbow-length sleeves and trimmed with ruching edged with a fringe of white silk gimp and coloured floss knots.
The sack back was radically altered for fancy dress; panels of the petticoat inserted at the front, the back pleats reconfigured and a buttoned stomacher of a different silk and fringe added. A flounce, probably from the petticoat was added to the front at the waist.
