Description

Pale aqua silk and ivory lace bed jacket. The jacket falls to the high waist and has wide kimono style elbow length sleeves. The jacket has a v-neck collar and buttons up the front with six tiny mother of pearl buttons. The vine pattern lace is used as trim along the bottom hem, at the cuffs, shoulder seams, and surrounds the collar and down the front center of the jacket. The front of the jacket also has two attached aqua bows at the front of the waist. The jacket is lined with a sheer aqua gauze material. The lace trim around the collar continues around the neck and forms a v-shape at the back of the neck.
