This is a beautiful evening jacket that has been embroidered and embellished with black beads. It is a straight boxy style. It closes with 8 hooks and eyes. It has the big shoulder pads that were popular in the 1980's. The flat measurements are as follows: Armpit to armpit 48", Waist 46", Around bottom 48", Sleeve length from shoulder seam 23.50", Length from back of neck 28" and Across back of shoulders 19". I don't see any holes but there is an area on the back near the bottom where there is a 1/2" line of beads missing. It is so heavily beaded that it is not that noticeable at all.
