Aveline is a semi-fitted blazer with an accentuated waist. The bust darts have been transferred to the neckline on the front bodice, and the shoulder darts have also been transferred to the neckline on the back bodice. The front and back feature dart pleats at the waistline, and the back has a center seam. The collar is a classic blazer notched lapel style, with a separate collar stand. The edges of the collar and the lapels are rectangular. Aveline fastens with one button and buttonhole, and the front flaps spread apart below the button. The blazer features a dropped shoulder and set in two-piece sleeves. The sleeve is of an unusual shape, with a convex curve on the outer seam. The blazer is neatly finished with a separate lining and is below the hip length.
