Description

This black cotton suit is comprised of a long-sleeved blazer and skirt.

The blazer has shoulder pads, four shiny black button fastenings along the centre-front opening, and embroidered multi-coloured hearts along the front bodice. There is also a large embroidered heart along the back of the jacket. The bottom of the centre-front opening is cut diagonally on each side to have a small triangle-like peak.

The skirt is made of the same black cotton as the jacket and has a hem that hits just below the knee.
