Made from blue jacquard-woven cotton damask fabric, the fabric has a bamboo and floral motif. The tunic is long sleeved with a high neck line and short banded collar. The collar is trimmed with a delicate light blue and pink scalloped tape. Chinese knot buttons in the center of the neck to hold the tunic closed.
