Physical description
(a) The vest has a V-neck in striped wool knit, with vertical stripes of varying widths, alternating from blue, deep red and yellow throughout the main body of the vest. The bands at the neckline and waist are also striped though. The stripes run horizontally and at regular widths. (b) The wrap skirt in grey wool knit consists of an over-sized jumper with a bound-edge opening through both layers on the proper left side, for feeding through the sleeve to secure the skirt at the waist. (c) The tie has blue, yellow and deep red diagonal stripes of various widths in woven wool fabric. Lined with black silk.
