Black silk jacquard evening dress with net overlay, by Miss Beckie, American, 1910-12. The chic styling of this evening dress incorporates the asymmetry of the period in the overpanel on the skirt. The contrast between the subtle scrollwork and the plain chiffon and point d'esprit is very effective. The bow detail and the triangular back collar are stylish accents. The sheer sleeves and translucent layers of point d'esprit and black silk on the back bodice add seductive elements.
