Four breadths of white linen or cotton: the white silk selvedges have been sewed together. Across the bottom is a row of conventional branches bearing three leaves and worked with pink and green silk and gold and silver thread. The pink and green silks are spasely wound with yellow, and the white and yellow foundations of the silver and gold threads are visible in many places. Similar branches are arranged up the front of the garment in the form of a pyramid.
