A baby's cream knitted matinee jacket with long sleeves (1920s or 1930s). The jacket has a sheen and may possibly be knitted in rayon. Threaded through the collar is a self-coloured rayon ribbon and leaves two ties at either side. At the neck is a ribbon which is tied onto the jacket, leaving two loose ends. The knit is worked to form a slight frill at the cuffs.
