1960s Embroidered & Sequin Hand Made Coat

This is really an exceptional 1960s (or perhaps even earlier) coat that is entirely hand made and very beautiful. The exterior is made of a striped woven silk that has been covered in a wonderful embroidered pattern interspersed with sequins. The Embroidery is a combination of yarn work, applied cording and embroidery work and acts as a border to all the edging and also explodes down each side of the coat in a spectacular design. Inside a cotton floral design is finished to perfection and if not for the raw thread work of the embroidery showing you could have worn this inside out. I particularly love the treatment around the faux pockets and the black and white yarn that is used to edge all the work through the coat. It gives it a slightly modern twist that is very appealing. A really wonderful piece. Excellent condition

Fully lined as per above description and finished equally well inside and out. All the embroidery work is clearly hand done. No closures.
