Gorgeous, short, rayon gabardine jacket. Padded shoulders. Notched, purple-satin-lined collar. Dart-fitted and flared past the waist. Wasp-waisted design most probably influenced by Christian Dior's famous Bar Jacket or New Look silhouette. Self-covered flat metal buttons. Two waist pockets. Lined in twisted rayon crepe. From the fashion studio of Gertrude Singer.
