1960s Pastel Crewel Embroidered Detailing Black Jacket

This is a lovely, lightweight jacket covered in extensive crewel embroidery. The base is a black wool cut into a duster coat silhouette. The lines are long to just past the knee and the collar is cut high and round. The embroidery covers the entire surface of the jacket in the prettiest pastel hues that vary from a light lavender to a soft coral. Even the buttons that run down the front are embroidered. I believe the embroidery work to be machine done so the price is very reasonable. Were this an earlier version that was entirely made by hand you could easily add expect to add a '1' to the front of the listed price. It is a wonderful piece that is light enough to wear year round. Excellent condition 

Fully lined in a black silk and buttons down the front as seen. There is one small repaired area on the inside lining near the collar. The easy cut will allow it to fit a range of sizes depending on how you like your jacket to fit.
