A doll's size modern padded, white, polycotton-covered mount in the shape of a torso with arms, holding the remains of a dress bodice. The only remaining pieces of this are the collar, the seams and the ribbons at the cuffs and waist. There are very small amounts of a kind of net fabric adhering to some of the stitching. The collar has been formed by folding and stitching the same cream silk ribbon which comprises the ties. This ribbon has pink stains along the waist part and the right cuff. There are two old-looking pins through the encasing paper.
