Chinese Minority Jacket with Embroidered Patches

How can we resist the pop of that electric blue against the deep indigo, amplified by spectacularly intricate embroideries in rich, warm colors?  A vintage marvel from the Miao tribe in Guizhou, China, this is a truly one-of-a-kind piece.  It's a veritable showcase of technique, and such a daring choice of color-- the loving care with which it was created is passed on to you in the wearing.  Soft cotton in a swingy fit, with 7" slits up the sides, dolman sleeves and a front tie.  We added the front pocket (also vintage Chinese) for a little convenience. Will fit a size 4-6 comfortably.
