The jacket has a pleated standing collar in the back with a v-shaped collar in the front with a contrasting trim strip around the complete neckline. This pattern was designed to fit the 9 Seeley french fashion lady body. Please measure leather bodies, bodies like the UF body and/or antique bodies and adjust according to your individual body size prior to cutting your fine fabrics. This elegant walking costume is remarkable for its elaborate construction and decorative details and will be topped off with the instructions to make a wired tricorn hat with flowers.
