Size 8 1930s Evening Coat - Authentic 30s 40s Velvet Princess Coat with Chantilly Lace Collar & Cuffs - Exquisite Wrap Design - Bust 34.5
1930s black velvet coat with fine Chantilly lace trim, a luxurious find for a formal affair. This exquisitely made wrap style coat has a dramatic frill of French style lace at the plunge neckline, continuing along the front closure to the hem, with matching lace flares at the wrists. The silhouette is a gorgeous fit & flare design, fully lined in silk organza. Note that this coat is difficult to date... there are suggestions of late 1930s to early 40s era, as well as hints that it might be 1950s or 60s era as well.

Please note: All measurements (bust - waist - hip) are the maximum body measurements that will fit the item. These measurements already have ease subtracted and they are not actual fabric widths. To get actual fabric widths add two inches at the bust - one inch at the waist and two inches at the hip.
For coats & jackets, remember that you may be wearing layers between yourself and the coat. Please take measurements while wearing these layers to get the best idea of fit. Questions about fit? Please ask! We're always happy to help :)
