The top button with button loop, the lower two with button holes. The vertical line is notched at the mid-bust level to create a subtle asymmetrical detail.

The back features a single vent and a further six top stitched seams of both vertical and horizontal orientation. The garment is fully lined with champagne coloured acetate.
