1960s Tat Saunders Woven Folk Print Spring Coat

This sixties coat by Tat Sandler is really unusual and quite fabulous. The Tat Saunders label was quite prestigious in its day - she started out as a boutique at the Ritz Carlton and ended up with four stores in total all of which specialized in customs creations and couture pieces that were brought in specifically for their wealthy clients. So when you find this label you know the pieces are of very good quality.  In person this coat present as far more of a white piece with colorful "embroidery" feeling pattern woven through the fabric. The photos make the print seem more predominant - the best pic for how it feel in person is that of the label. The fabric feels like perhaps a cotton mix that has an almost canvas like feel to it but with a smooth texture to it, not the rough weave of a true canvas. It is just off-white with the wonderful little floral folk feeling print woven through its surface that cover the coat from top to bottom adding a pretty pop of color against the backdrop. It is cut to the knee and skims over the body in a A-line design. The collar is neat and small and I love the rounded gold buttons - they add the perfect touch of glamour. It is a very pretty and unusual little piece. Excellent condition
