Short jacket in green silk piqué with a round neck. It is made from four pieces of material: two at the back and two at the front. The front pieces, with curved flap pockets, incorporate mixtilinear and asymmetric flaps in pink silk piqué. The long sleeves are fitted at the elbow and fasten at the wrist with a cuff that has nine buttonholes. These match nine wooden buttons, which are covered in the same fabric and decorated with metallic gold braid piping around a pink glass center.

The two back pieces are sewn with a central seam that stops at the waist to leave an opening. The edging of the whole garment, including its pockets, flaps, and cuffs, is decorated with winding metallic gold braid, depicting plant motifs with the use of flat, die-cut, and talc sequins. It is lined with pink taffeta weave silk, while the upper back section has been lined with taffeta weave linen in the same color.
