Full image caption

Woman's close-fitting, long sleeved jacket, with centre-front fastening and a round neck. The body is cut with a fairly narrow back panel and two side-fronts. The shaping is achieved along the seam lines and centre-front opening and by the insertion of seven gussets along the lower edge, one in the centre back, two in the seams between the back and side-front panels and two in each of the side fronts. The fairly close-fitting sleeves are cut in two pieces and are shaped to fit around the elbow. The sleves have slit openings at the wrists. They have been lengthened by the addition of strips of plain linen at the tops. The jacket is of linen embroidered with fine black wool in stem, speckling and blanket stitches.
