The collarless garment extends from the shoulder to slightly below the waist and features a deep v-neckline, long sleeves, elasticized waist, a full front opening secured by one button at the waist and a hemmed bottom.

In your letter you state that the sample is a blouse (G619335). The garment provides insufficient coverage for wear as a blouse.
