Title:
Fitted coat with faille jabot and front panel
Description:
"Faille" is a fabric with crosswise-running flat ribs. A "jabot" is a cascade of ruffled material. Note here how the artist has suggested the faille's texture with close-spaced parallel lines in contrast to the screen-applied dotted shading on the rest of the coat.
Includes small sketch of back of garment.
