Original 1940s 40s Vintage Rust Red Double Breasted Belt Back Princess Coat
This incredible coat was made from rust red gabardine in the 1940s. It is cut in a classic princess style with strong padded shoulders, a nipped waist and a full skirt. The sharp dagger collar leads to eight buttons in a double breasted arrangement that fasten the coat and there are huge pockets at the hip. At the back, the waist is highlighted with a small back belt and the skirt is pleated behind this belt to give even more fabulous volume and the appearance of a bustle back. Inside, the coat is lined in red satin which has been interlinked for extra warmth and has a maker’s label for Rosewin.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
The coat is in very good condition with only some tiny fabric pulls, a small barely noticeable dark and some of the buttonhole stitching coming a little loose.
