LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 - RESERVED FOR AMBIKA- Stunning Original 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Cream Grey Swing Coat With Gorgeous Button
RESERVED FOR AMBIKA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 2 due 10th February 2022
This stunning coat was made from cream coloured gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in a classic swing shape with super strong padded shoulders and a loose fit below. The sharp collar leads to a single decorative fabric covered button at the neck which fastens the coat. Slit pockets at the waist and turn up cuffs finish off the coat beautifully. Inside, the coat is lined in satin and has a maker’s label for Dale Fashions which has oddly been sewn in back to front. It looks like the coat has been altered for a taller lady as the sleeve lining looks to have been extended to make unusually long sleeves for a garment of this period. It may be during this alteration process that the tailor inverted the label to note that it has been altered but this was clearly done so professionally.
Shoulders: 16 3/4” seam to seam
Sleeve Length: 26” shoulder to cuff with cuffs turned up
The coat is in very good condition, however there are a number of faint marks as pictured which are only noticeable upon close inspection may lift with dry cleaning as well as two slight grazes. We think this coat was in fact barely worn as the functional pockets are still sewn closed.
