Two ivory cap sleeves with needlework and lace hems, which appear to have been detached from a garment. Fabric is gathered near shoulders; piping encircles the armhole edge. A strip of cutwork embroidery is attached to sleeve hems; embroidery is comprised of a serpentine vine. A thin row of scalloped lace is found at the edge of the hem.
