Title:
Dressy box coat
Description:
Dressy, slim-lined box coat with shirred shoulder treatment. The coat's buttons look like sprigs of leaves, or maybe birds. One can't quite tell from the illustration, and there's no mention of them in the description on the picture.
Image includes small sketch of back of garment.
Printed on image: "Very slim lines. Shirring beneath shoulder seams lends softness to body." "designed by Pearl Alexander" "André 570 - 7th Ave. New York City Dec. 16, 1940"
