1960s Pink Metallic Pat Sandler Dress & Coat


Pat Sandler opened his own label in the early sixties and quickly became known for his wonderful little cocktail dresses that often incorporated metallic fabrics like in this one, or embellishments. This particular set is amazing and I love the combination of pink and gold. Plus with it being two fantastic pieces you have the added versatility of wearing it as a set or mixing and matching with other pieces from your closet. The fabric is the star here and quite fabulous with an abstract dot pattern worked through the fabric in shades of golds and pinks with subtle pops of coral. I love the metallic lame thread and how it is used in different textures and weights to give the design extra dimension. The dress is a simple little mod shift with an A-line cut and ends above the knee. The collar is high and curved seaming at the front helps to create an illusion of shape and line. The coat is made of the same fabric and is also cut to above the knee. It widens as it nears the hem and has long, slim sleeves. Glittering, jewel encrusted button run down the front and I love the huge top set pockets on each hip. Despite the flap closure they actually open at each side. It is absolutely gorgeous in person - better even then the photos portray. Excellent condition Both pieces are fully lined in a pink silky rayon. The dress closes with a back painted metal zipper and the coat has hidden set snaps up the front. The buttons are decorative only. Pockets on the coat but none on the dress.
