1960s Unlabeled Inky Black Velvet Crossed Stitched Quilted Great Coat
This black velvet great coat with its quilted effect that runs over the surface of the velvet from top to bottom is fantastic. This is the type of coat that the sixties made famous. It has a long and lean line that gives you height. The bodice is cut to be more fitted and closer to the body. At the waist it starts to flare outward and the skirt of the coat is a long A-line. The feeling is that of a Great coat. I love the double row of buttons that run down the front. These add a bit of detailing there. The collar is oversized and cut so that it sits almost shoulder to shoulder when it is done up. The coat is made form a black cotton velvet. This fabric choice helps it to the hold the shape that you see. The velvet is then top stitched with a diamond pattern and there is a layer of padding underneath so it has a bit of a 3D feel. This gives the fabric a depth and texture that really adds to it. The versatility of the black is wonderful. This is definitely a coat for a girl that wants to make an entrance. Excellent condition
