About

Remarkable hand embroidered zip-front jacket and full length skirt completely covered with multi-color couched thread with images of dragons, phoenix and clouds. Beautifully executed with many figures raised (trapunto) to give a slight 3D effect. Most of the thread is silver bullion and the bottom of the skirt is bullion fringe.
