The V shaped neckline, is framed by an elegant shawl collar which boasts running stitch details along the edges and begins from either side of the back of the neckline.

The wonderful swing cut of the jacket is accented by double tailored darts that run from the yoke panel along the bust-line, which set off the flared A line silhouette. The jacket draws in below the neckline with a simple frog and loop button. Finished with deep pockets along either side of the front of the hemline, which are accented by curved panelled details, and running stitches. The jacket is fully lined in satin.
