The blouse consists of several frieze patterns that adorn the front and back. The patterns show different symmetry group types.

The symmetry group of the three frieze patterns below is m1. There are vertical reflections spaced half the translation length. The frieze pattern adorning the neckline of the blouse has also the same symmetry group.
