Description
Short fitted, pale blue jacket with a centre front metal zip. Embroidered with floral motifs in silk threads and sequins in orange, yellow, light and dark blue beads. The jacket's cut references historical bodice construction, and patchwork. The hemline finishes in a peplum that is supported by the skirt. The skirt is pleated into the elasticised waist and the pleating varies in width and repeat. At the waist an extension of various widths and pleating repeats support the peplum of the jacket. The hemline is flared with a 20cm wide strip of padding enclosed 8cm above the hemline.
