Vintage 1960s Opera Coat / White Silver Silk Satin Brocade / Cherry Blossoms




Absolutely stunning 1960s opera coat in silver white silk satin brocade with a pale yellow cherry blossom pattern. Bespoke from Hong Kong. Open front design with gorgeous wide gathered collar and 3/4 raglan style sleeves with wide turned cuffs. Full pleating in back creates a swing shape. Fully lined in quilted silk with a hidden pocket and monogrammed with the original owner’s initials. It is in excellent condition and appears to have been worn only once. There is very light mark on cuff edge and one sleeve, see last photo.

Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate. 

Bust – 49 inches (125 cm) – this is the full width of fabric laid flat, it will naturally overlap in front if body measurement is smaller smaller
Waist / Hip – 49+ inches (125+ cm) – Coat is in slight a-line shape so waist and hip are a little bigger than bust.
Length from shoulder to hem – 41 inches (104 cm)
Sleeve length – 18 inches (45.5 cm)
Shoulders across back under the collar – 17 inches (43.5 cm)
