LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 2 - RESERVED FOR ALEXIS - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - Original 1930s 30s Vintage Pink And Brown Soft Cotton Colour Block Coat With Tie Belt
LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 2 - RESERVED FOR ALEXIS - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - due 3rd September 2020
This incredible coat was made from a soft rayon cotton blend in the 1930s. It features classic colour block styling with a soft peach top and a dark brown bottom section giving the effect of a separate jacket and skirt from a distance. The coat features classic late 1930s detailing such as the gathered puff shoulders and the collarless neckline. A channel stitched drawstring waist tie in contrasting dark brown fastens the coat at the waist and allows the wearer to nip it in to their desired waist measurements. The skirt is gently flared and skims the wearer’s hips for a flattering silhouette. Inside, the coat is unlined, as would be expected of a summer weight garment, and without maker’s labels.
Waist: 36” max but can be reduced To as small as 24” by tying the drawstring waist smaller
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 40 1/2” plus 1” hem
The coat is in very good condition, however there is a small patched repair and some minor marks as pictured. There may have originally been small shoulder pads to emphasise the puff sleeves or the coat would have been worn over a dress with shoulder pads. Replacements could easily be made and inserted.
