Jacqueline Kennedy's Inaugural Gown

 January 13, 1973.  "Mrs. Kennedy wore this white cape and gown in 1961.  Cut and color your First Lady paper doll."  From The Mini Page.
1983.  FIRST LADIES' GOWNS, A Smithsonian Coloring Book.  Illustrations by Geraldine Lucas.  "Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.  The First Lady provided ideas and sketches to the designer for this white silk dress, worn to John F. Kennedy's inaugural ball in 1961.  The bodice is embroidered in silver thread, and is veiled overall with white chiffon to give a soft, shimmering effect.  The cape is of the same silk, triple-layered with chiffon.  An embroidered frog adorns the military collar."
