A dark green two-piece wool dress with a complex woven pattern includes a high neck collar in contrasting red satin. The collar is accented with horizontal bands of black braided trim. The same braided trim accents the bodice in a diagonal pattern. Additional red satin components are seen at the shoulder and inside the cuff. The dress was once part of the Westbrook College historic clothing collection. Unfortunately, its original owner is unknown and its provenance lost to history.
