This stunning 1960's cream coat, on a cotton voile base embellished with twisted silk threads in a chevron pattern accented by iridescent pearlescent sequins in a zig zag pattern, is the perfect piece to add a touch of sparkle to your collection.
The mandarin styled collar draws together along the front of the coat beneath a large sequin embellished covered button that conceals a press stud fastening. The simple shoulder line sets off the 3/4 length sleeves. The wonderful A line cut of the coat is accented by central rounded buttons that conceal press stud fastenings and elegant side slits along each side seam. This coat is lined in cream rayon satin.
