The hem of the collar, the diagonal placket, side slits, bottom and central seams on sleeves is decorated with three parallel lines of satin strips, namely, a 3.5cm wide pale lavender foundation satin strip with floral and butterfly patterns, a 7cm wide black satin band with colorful embroidered figures of flowers and butterflies, and a 2.4cm plain black satin ribbon. Beautifully-shaped cloud motifs in the form of ruyi added to the two side slits give some more liveliness to the garment, on which there are five pairs of “一” -shaped frogs with copper buttons, one pair on the collar, one pair on the diagonal placket, one pair under right arm, one pair on each of the side slits, with the lowest pair missing.
The highlight of this robe lies in the folded cuffs featuring embroidered blossoms of peony, peach, and orchid as well as butterflies and phoenix on a white foundation satin. The embroidery, with an elegant palette as well as vivid shapes of birds and flowers, reveals the refined fashion taste of the owner.
