A baby's blue crocheted matinee jacket. The bodice and sleeves are in tight plain crochet with a patterned scalloped edge to the sleeves. The neckline is finished with a row of white wool crochet with a blue crocheted cord threaded through. This has a crocheted flower motif at either end - one of which has a bit missing. The jacket fastens at the waist with a small mother of pearl button. The skirt is flared and crocheted in open work vertical panels. The lower 60mm of the skirt is in a lighter blue.
