Woman's jacket of embroidered linen with silks. Sleeveless with a plain round neck, front opening, a seam down the back, and flaring out below the waist in four separate sections. White linen embroidered with yellow silk in back, chain, stem and satin stitches and speckling. The embroidery design follows the cut of the jacket. All round the edges, except round the neck, runs a border of small flowers and leaves on delicate scrolling stems, in between a line of back stitch, which outlines the edge of the jacket, and a double line of chain stitch. The rest of the jacket is embroidered with an all-over pattern of interlacing wavy lines with S-scrolls at some of the intersections. The original drawing of the patter can be seen underneath the embroidery. The neck is bound with cream silk ribbon. Lined with cream-coloured silk.
