Beautiful jewel coloured emerald turquoise raw silk evening coat, tailor made with round neckline and a typical 60s cut high on the waist, almost an empire line. With 6 silk covered buttons on the double breasted bodice and 2 faux pockets with flaps. The skirt of the coat then flares slightly down to the hem. The back has a belt detail with covered buttons on either end. The colour is stunning and the texture of the silk is so soft, absolutely lush.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
