There are multiple vintage linings; the main body has a beautiful mushroom printed lining, the sleeves and pockets are lined in a navy dotted print and the undershirt trim is plaid.
The applique mushrooms are trapunto, meaning they are stuffed, and their gills are pleated. The right sleeve arm band has a magnified view of lichen growing on birch bark and a spider is found camouflaged there. The left sleeve has a few branches with hand embroidered leaves.
