Evening wraparound jumpsuit of pale green silk, with short slit-sleeves, an inserted panel at the V-neckline and an elasticised waistband. The top section has a long opening at the centre back and fastenings at the neck with a single button. One leg is full length with four signature buttons at inside leg at the ankle, the other cut at mid-thigh, raw edges finished with stitching. Over this sits a full length wrap-style skirt panel, attached at the left hip and fastening at the opposite hip with ties extending from the skirt waistband.
