Satin maternity dress. Unboned, loose-fitting
long dress in a very good quality black silk satin, with ruched satin around the elbow length sleeves and across the edge of the high waisted yoke. The dress is not really very well made, lined with brown cotton, and was obviously not intended to be worn a great deal, maybe for only a couple of special occasions
whilst pregnant. It would have been worn with lace under sleeves and a modesty vest.
