Notes

This object was part of the Carrie Marcus Neiman Foundation Collection of fashion items collected by Stanley and Edward Marcus in honor of their aunt, one of the original founders of Neiman-Marcus. Begun in 1938, the collection comprised important items of fashion from each season, and included many items designed by winners of the Neiman-Marcus Fashion Awards, as well as pieces owned by or collected by Carrie Marcus-Neiman.

This outfit was designed to matching another in the collection (1938.001.332) to create a "sister set", whereby older and younger sisters would be dressed similarly. The fabrics were designed by Hope Skillman, Inc., the outfits by Helen Lee, and they were manufactured by Youngland.
