Gold collarless coat

This Silvalyne housecoat still has its swing tag. It retailed at $7.95, dating it later than 1967 when decimal currency was introduced to New Zealand. The Silvalyne label was started by Dannevirke designer, Norman Alexander. His designs were stocked in retail stores throughout New Zealand.
