Physical description

Pair of pyjama jacket and trousers made of georgette varying in colour from purple to pale pink.

The jacket is made up of petal-shaped strips or panels cut on the cross machined together vertically. There is a centre front opening. There are no sleeves but two strips stitched to the top of the arm only are allowed to hang loose and drape over the arm.

The trousers have an elastic waist band threaded though. Lining of pink georgette made in two pieces, seams C/B and C/F, no shaping, and the legs are shorter than the draped outer panels. The outer panels cut on the cross consist of the same colour range as the jacket, a purple panel at the back, pale pink at the front and shaped at the hip. The front of the leg is shorter than the back which is allowed to drape.
