1960 Coffee Silk Satin Vintage Opera Coat

Worn at the opera as outer-formal wear, vintage opera coats were the fashion trend of the day. Designed in the 60's of a silk satin in a deep coffee tone and lined in a rust color taffeta lining, this opera coat would be wonderful for a formal evening out or worn as a wedding coat. The coat features a semi rounded collar and 4 self fabric buttons and 5 button holes from the neckline to the mid torso, giving this coat an empire effect. The top button is missing, but could easily be replicated using a bit of the hemline. The back of the coat features a self fabric semi-sash fastened to the back with two extra large self fabric buttons just at the high part of the waistline. A kick pleat works its way down from the sash to the unfinished hemline. This coat is really beautifully constructed. There is a slight inclusion on one sleeve and the hemline on both sleeves need to be re-done.
