Oh! What a dream coat this wonderful vintage 1930s piece is! Made of a navy wool boucle with white chalkstriping in the vertical ribs, it is a material one would only see in a 30s coat. Exceptional! The slim tailored shape is classically mid-late 30s. And these sleeves! OH, these sleeves - the unqique use of the striping, with a horizontal inset at the top of each arm, and the padded, puffed shoulders! The skirt at the back is cut on the bias, creating chevrons with the stripes. It is fully lined with satin, and the underarms have a second layer of self-fabric reinforcement. The coat closes with interior satin ties and two carved buttons on the exterior.

Please take care to allow for ease when evaluating the measurements of a coat. This best fits a size XS to Small

Shoulders: 13.5"
Bust: 35"-36" (best for up to 34"
Waist: 28"
Hips: 28
Length: 42.5"

Condition: Very Good with minor issues
This coat has been freshly drycleaned and pressed, and is ready to be worn. There are scattered moth chews throughout, but due to the texture of the boucle and the ribbing, only a small number of these are seen without holding the coat to the light. I count about six on the front, and seven on the back that can be seen with examination of the exterior. (There are more that can be seen when held to the light.) Despite this, I find the coat to be entirely wearable and quite beautiful. It has been priced according to condition.
