Description
The body is knitted in a deep gold with half-circles of celery green worked in intarsia along the center fronts to form the background for the embroidered border. Smooth and textured yarns in an assorment of spicy colors are stitched along the edges of the sleeves and front openings. The jacket fastens with twenty, tiny hook-and-eye closures.
