Women's double-breasted navy coat featuring a mandarin collar, cropped sleeves, and flap pockets on the lower hips. As indicated in the inscription, the coat includes either gold cords or beads that outline the collar and possibly the sleeve cuffs. The illustration also includes multiple sketches of hats that are presumably intended to be worn with the coat, including a cloche with military style ribbons.
