The soft unlined jacket is made of a metallic grey cotton which has been over-printed with light green stripes. It is cut with wide dolman sleeves which taper to below the elbow. The wide collar sits away from the neck and the jacket fastens down the centre front with five large red plastic buttons and is belted at the waist with a self fabric belt with a metal buckle and eyelets. The sleeveless dress is hand-printed with a design of birds, fish, fruit, and flowers in dark blue, purple and green, against a blue and white geometric background. The dress has a deep collarless V-shaped neckline and is fastened down the centre front with eight brown wooden buttons. The outfit has two necklaces featuring perspex hearts.
