Full description:

A blue cotton anorak with zipped collar, hood, and buttoned front pocket. A cotton strap at the back hem of the jacket is buttoned inside, but can be threaded between the wearer's legs to a second button at the inside hem in front. A size label, '16', is stitched into the inside of the hood at the top, and a brand label for the Swedish manufacturer, 'Vargen', also showing a wolf beneath the inscription, is stitched inside at the base of the wind cover of the zip. The hood drawstring is a white lace with plastic tips. Two brass eyelets around the crimped waist suggest space for a second drawstring (now missing).
