Made of what seems to be black wool. The coat has a classic early 20th-century cut, with pleated front and nipped in waist. Stud and popper closure with ornamental fabric buttons. Hem, collar back and cuff are soft black silk. Internally the construction is complex with a waistband and an additional partial cotton lining for the chest which has a hook and eye closure.

The skirt is plain with some large ornamental black buttons. Closure is studs and poppers at the hip and an internal waistband with hooks and eyes. Cotton layer internally.

There are signs of wear especially at the collar edges and armpits


As is typical of Victorian and Edwardian ladies clothing, the waist is very high and upper bodies are close fitting.
