Designed by the New York dressmaker, Grace King, this is a well-crafted and designed garment that compares favorably to the French pieces of that era. The color combination is extremely attractive and the buttons are noteworthy for their visual appeal. Also of interest, are the petite measurements: bust 29", waist 21.5", and back shoulder width 10".
Marking: Stamped into petersham: "Grace King/641 6th Ave."
