Original 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Navy Blue Gabardine Fit And Flare Princess Coat By Juilliard
This stunning coat was made in a navy blue wool gabardine in the 1940s. The coat has been styled in a classic wrap over princess cut with a tightly nipped waist, padded shoulders and a flared skirt. A large shawl collar combines elegantly with the v-neckline. The coat features amazing decorative zigzag panelling at the sides of the bodice, which adds a stunning detail to this classic piece. There are also functional waist pockets, turn up cuffs with a decorative edge and an inverted box vent at the back of the skirt. Inside, the coat is lined in navy blue crepe and has a maker’s label for Juilliard wool.
Length: 43” plus 2 3/4” hem
The coat is in very good condition, however there is a small hole to the lining as well as a repair to the underarm seam of the lining. There are also two tiny holes near the side panel of the coat as pictured. The coat is missing its original belt, the belt shown is for display only and not included.
