118 FOLKWEAR TIBETAN PANEL SLVLSS VEST, COAT PATTERN 6-18
Price / kg:
Folkwear #118 Tibetan Panel Coat. This ancient full-length vest or sleeveless coat may still be seen worn by Tibetans today on festive occasions, by brides, and by actors and actresses portraying celestial beings in sacred plays. Traditionally constructed of simple contrasting panels of handwoven wool, rectangular solid color panels alternate with horizontal striped wedge-shaped panels, creating an overlap front opening. Worn open or belted, the neckband extends to the hem. Facings (indigo-dyed blue for our original) are turned to the inside along the front opening, hem, side vents, and armhole. An additional decorative facing (silken gold brocade on our prototype) is turned to the outside underarm and shoulder area. Instructions are given for a simple optional lining, which eliminates the need to finish the seams. Mix and match your favorite fabrics for a truly unique look. used a web picture. heavy pattern extra postage.. packet mail.. uncut preowned. SIZES 6 TO 18 SMALL, MED. LARGE.
