Physical description
The tailored knee-length suit dress in grey wool is woven with a fine white pinstripe. The collar has notched lapels, the shoulders are padded and the full-length sleeves feature a shallow slit at the cuff. Decorative 'fake' pocket flaps cut and stitched to simulate the lower edge of a bow. Fastening at the centre front with six grey plastic buttons, the dress is fully lined with black acetate.
