Drawing depicts two women in ankle-length dresses with low-cut necklines and elbow-length sleeves striking elegant poses. In the foreground, a pale blue dress with striped, laced bodice over a white ruffled chemise, blue bows on the sleeves, with wide white ruffles at the elbows. A large blue bow is tied at the front of her white bonnet and there are large bows on her blue shoes. A dainty, ruffled edge white apron is tied at her waist. Accessories include a ring with a large stone and a choker with pendant. A less defined figure behind wears a dress and fichu with fewer details. The pencil drawing has been reinforced with black ink and tinted with watercolor washes. A swatch is affixed in the upper left.
