Regal 1960s Cream & Gold Thread Evening Opera Coat

This coat is really a wonderful piece that focuses on the cut and fabric to convey the beauty of it. The fabric is a weighty cream silk brocade that has a horizontal "ribbing" from top to bottom that is  created by metallic gold threads. This creates a striping effect and gives the coat a subtle shimmer from head to toe. The cut is simple and is cut almost on a column with a slight flaring out as it nears the hem. The back is pure drama and feels like it is almost cut on  a curve that creates the volume that you see.  The fabric choice gives it a sculptural feel. It is absolutely incredible. The sleeves follow that same slight widening as they reach their hem. It closes with one single button at the front. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a heavy weight cream satin. One button closes it at the neck. The fabric has a good solid weight to it but once on is perfectly distributed. No pockets. Appears unworn. The open cut will allow it to fit a range of sizes as long as the shoulders work.

Sleeves: 20"
Shoulders: 15"
Bust: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist-hips: open
Length: 54" from neck to hem
