Vintage cropped Asian jacket with quilted embellishment silky rayon in size large - Lg. Gorgeous.... period!
Measurements in inches: Bust 36, waist 40, ( A line construction), across upper back 15-1/5, Sleeve 21 inches and shown with the cuff turned up 3-1/2 inches. Length from centerback to hem is 20 inches.
One piece jacket is made with a so, silky, soft blend of silk and rayon that is a true gold color. It is marvelous. The lining, in the same blend of fabric is dark brown.
This is a cropped design and an usual silhouette. I've never had this one before. Bell sleeves are cut as one with the front and back body of jacket. There are gussets under the arms for ease of movement. Darts at the shoulders both front and back. No bustline darts.
It has lavish machine quilting in the traditional "cloud" pattern with good luck medallions. Beautiful work; at the front and inside of the Mandarin collar, down the front opening, at pockets, around the hem as well as the cuffs. The quilting is also done at the center top, back. Lots of lovely work.
The three frog closures are self fabric. They are made in the shape of a good luck symbol. There is also self fabric piping around openings and edges. A labor intensive piece and so worth it!
