Coat

Balkan men and women wore elaborately tailored coats for important court ceremonies. The floating sleeves and wide front-opening skirt allow the wearer free movement for riding or dancing, both essential elements of court festivities. Notice the fine gold-thread couching on deep red velvet, and how the sleeves float on the arms instead of encircling them.

How would you feel wearing a garment as elaborately embroidered and intricately constructed as this coat?
