Peter's coronation tunic is of a rich blue velvet. It ends
about halfway to knee-length.
The mandarin collar has a single curved oak leaf embroidered
in gold on either side. The collar is made up of two self-lined
pieces that curve down the neck at the back, overlapping (picture).
The satin-stitched embroidery on the
front is metallic gold, an art nouveau emblem. In the closer
images, it appears themed like a harvest, with a sheaf of wheat
and more oak leaves flowing together.
The sleeves are eased and set in, flat-lined
in a pale blue satin (same as undersleeve fabric). The velvet
is turned under about a 1/4".
They're not quite full length. They
split on the outer part of the arm, up to the elbow, with curved
edges. Lined in a pale blue satin (the same as the undersleeve),
the velvet turns under about 1/4" over the lining. The
sleeve split is bordered a 1/4" from the hem edge in a
1/4" yellow flat braid.
The tunic splits up the front to within
a couple inches of the waist, cased in a yellow binding that
extends down and around the band of yellow satin at the the
hem. The two-inch band is also decorated in cord: it's "filled
in" with diagonally placed strips of cord, leaning towards
the center on either side of the slit. The band is finished
off by the same cord bordering the top edge, just slightly lower
than the band/tunic seam.
The waist is belted with two thin twisted
yellow-gold cords - in this
image we can barely see that they somehow tie at the back.
We can see the blue satin undersleeves
at the slit, and under the hem of the velvet tunic in this
image. The sleeves are probably gathered and set in, very
loose, and are gathered into a fitted cuff. On the underside
of the cuff are four self-fabric buttons.
His bright yellow cape looks like a
short pile panné velvet, lined in a paler yellow cream
satin. The velvet is simply turned under an inch, and the edge
of the cape has a twisted gold cord either stitched into the
seam there or handstitched.
The back of the cape is embossed with
approximately one-inch designs, like the one below.
wears pale cream yellow hose, the same color as the cape lining.
His almost knee-high blue boots are covered in the same blue
velvet as his tunic, slit at the back a few inches long and
turned down the same amount, edged doubly with the flat yellow
cord from the hem of the tunic, the inner strand of which loops
at the right angle of the slit and continues up.
