Graceful coat design based on the curving, intertwining stem-and-leaf motifs of the Arts and Crafts movement. To define and add dimension to the "branches" that form the vertical "seams" of the coat, the designer experimented with slipping and wrapping stitches. A tweedy yarn gives the leaf-and-branch motifs a barklike background texture.
