Women's jacket

2006.44.1332 (RS12136)

Description

Heather gray wool knit women's jacket. The jacket has long sleeves and is short in length, reaching below the bust. The front is a wrap style where the right side overlaps the left. On the right flap, there are buttons at the top and bottom corners and at the top edge near the right shoulder or collar bone area. These buttons correspond to button holes on the left flap. The edges of both sleeves and the bottom of the cardigan have a decorative knitted border made up of knitted stripes. Along the edge of the neckline there are holes knitted into the jacket, giving it a scalloped look. Along the bottom of the jacket are evenly spaced holes knitted in horizontally and continue around the whole jacket. On both side seams, double vertical rows of holes are knitted in, from the row of horizontal holes to just below the sleeve attachment.
