Original 1950s Red Gabardine Ladies Vintage Swing Jacket With Faux Pearl Embellishment By Johnstons California
This wonderful swing jacket was made from a red faille in the 1950s. The jacket is adorned with faux pearls across the shoulders and this theme is reflected in the centres of the fabric covered buttons both in the centre of the coat and attached to the cuffs. The swing jacket has padded shoulders to add a little shape while the cut of the jacket itself adds a lot of swish. It also has a wing collar, cuffed bracelet length sleeves and an original maker’s label for Johnston’s California.
Shoulders: 16 1/2” edge to edge of shoulder pads
Bust: 42” absolute max
The jacket is in good condition, however there is a pearl missing from the back, a small stain to the collar and a loose seam. The fabric covered button have been restored and some glue residue can be observed on close inspection and some of the faux pearls at the shoulders have lost some of their shine.
