As a gift for my younger sister Olga, a German laywer, I tried to think of something that is meaningful and very functional at the same time, and I made her a lawyer’s robe.
The robe is in a lightweight wool, the cloth has a light feel and being a natural textile it has a breathable quality that makes it cool to wear and offers the softest and most luxurious feel to the touch. It also offers the same comfort and static-resistant qualities of an all-natural fabric.
Back has a nice form-fitting curvette yoke. As for the bell bottom sleeve, it features three pleats, on the right sleeve there are button and closure for a comfort during writing.
