P-S Coat

Description: This coat was made as my Mother-of-the-Groom outfit for Peter’s and Sonja’s wedding. The silk fabric was hand-painted (with help from Olive Madden). The spiral design on the front bands is based on the P/S logo created for the wedding stationery. The stylised P on the right front becomes an S on the left front (Patricia Smout/Peter Sonja).

The coat is reversible. The other side is also silk fabric (hand-painted with help from Sue Ford) and the velvet band is decorated with a swirling pattern of the beads used in the flower-girls’ headpieces.
