Black petticoat with elastic waist, smooth nylon knit over the hips. The fuller bottom is black nylon mesh over a pale pink taffeta. The black mesh has flocked red dots and bows. There is also solid red piping around the sections of netting.

The red flocking has all over light wear and loss. The 'pink' under taffeta was probably originally white and turned pinkish from the red flocking.
