Ruching can also be seen on the shoulder caps and the sleeve cuffs. The bishop sleeves have pintucks as well. The bodice is boned and the skirt displays pintucks. The hem of the skirt has pintuck designs as well as a flounce. Features that indicate this dress is from the early 1900s are the S-bend silhouette, the monobosom, the standing collar, and the pintuck embellishments. 

This dress was found by the donor in the attic of the former home of the Bissell family. The home was located on 350 Plymouth Southeast in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This dress was made by Canfields.
