Hip-length jacket, open at the front, with a black velvet turndown collar and lapels. The front is fitted to the waist with darts. The straight, loose back adapts to the shoulder line with two darts. The three-quarter sleeves are assembled with three panels. Lined with ivory silk taffeta. An inside strap hugs the garment to the body, leaving the outside free and accentuating the fullness of the back.
