Sybil Connolly was a Dublin-based fashion designer who was known for creating fashion from Irish textiles, including finely pleated linen, wools such as Báinín, Limerick and Carrickmacross lace, and later for her work with brands such as Tiffany & Co. Her fashion label's clients included Jacqueline Kennedy. These beautiful limited edition prints are from her sketchbook and have been printed on fine quality paper.

This sketch in particular shows a knee-length double breasted cape. Above and below the armholes are flap pockets. It has a pointed collar with revers. The revers are of a tartan pattern fabric. A smaller sketch on the left shows the same cape but in tartan with the revers in a plain fabric. The third sketch, to the upper right, shows a two piece (top and skirt). The belted collarless top is in the same tartan pattern with a large button at the center front on a placket. The plain fabric pencil skirt is knee-length and has a seam on either side of the waist to the hem.
