Pink fleece women's jacket with pink silk trim. The collar is large and is similar to a yolk collar with pointed ends forming an upside down V over the center. The collar and sleeves are trimmed with a wide band of pink silk. There are three pink silk bows on the right edge of the front flap which have hook and eye closures behind them. There is also one extra hook and eye closure between the first and second bow. They are located on the top half of the jacket. There is one pocket with a triangular bottom, lined in pink silk, on the bottom portion of the right side. The edges of the right and left flaps are trimmed with pink silk as is the bottom edge of the jacket. The shoulders of the sleeves have rather large puffs. The back of the collar resembles a shortened version of a sailor collar with points at the corners and middle hanging lower. The back of the collar is also trimmed with pink silk. The body of the jacket has five seams down the back, giving the jacket a fitted look. The bottom of the jacket has two vertical splits, creating a center panel that has a slight flare to it and is wider at the bottom than the top. Both sides of the splits and the bottom edge are all trimmed in pink silk. Inside top of neckline a thin strip of tan fabric is sewn in tucked at either side to form a horizontal loop.
