4" Long x 6" c Arm pit hole. The top is lined with a brown lining. There is nothing to close the back (buttons or hooks), and no evidence that there ever was something there.
It is possible the child would have worn this only for a special occasion, and perhaps sewn into it. In very good condition with a small tear at the bottom of the back opening.
