The long sleeves finish with a button at the turn back cuff. It has a detachable, reversible tie that buttons onto the jacket and can be worn in various ways. The double row of over sized marbleized charcoal colored buttons pair with the hand sewn cloth bound button holes. The interior button is also paired with a cloth bound button hole. The straight gray skirt has a side slit at the right side hem. Covered gray nylon zipper up the back and secures with a metal hook/eye/set on the waistband. Both pieces are fully lined.
