another VINTAGE KITTY, LILY HANNAH creation..!

beautiful coat deconstructed and upcycled.. gorgeous....

created from a stretch velvet in gorgeous dusky rose plum colours... quite stretchy, heavyish cotton velvet jacket bodice, and a beautiful vintage crochet circle tablecloth which Ive hand dyed a grungy dusky mushroomy rose colour.. fading in and out, darker and lighter...

a midwaisted coat, very shabby chic styled with long sleeves... the sleeves are embellished with hand dyed, wide guipere lace, gathered cuffs.. , raw edged vintage laces, rose mesh, hand crochet cotton edge trims .. a few satin ribbon roses to finish off...

Ive stitched one of my raggy roses, and a couple of appliqued leaves on one side of the bodice, and decorated both sides of the front with scraps of lace , scraps of crochet, vintage buttons, more satin ribbon roses, and a scrap of a pretty embroidered vintage tray cloth.... this coat closes down the front with 4 cord toggles...

the back has been embellished with fabric scraps, pretty vintage doilies, hand made, and Ive added more bits and pieces of needlework,cotton lace, some pearl buttons , clusters of beautiful satin ribbon roses, and all sorts.. adorn this beautiful coat.. rescued from days gone by...one of my signature Vintage Kitty rose girl patches has been added to the back to complete the look...

a romantic faded glory look that I love... twisted tales entwined with vintage needlework and fine embroidered lace and crochet..as the same with all my coats, they always look much better on a real person than on my armless mannequin..! You will have to close your eyes and use your imagination..! you will not be disappointed..!

the bottom skirty part of the coat is a full circle.. gathered onto the bodice where there is a casing of hand dyed guipere lace in ecru.. and a beautiful wide velvet ribbon to pull tighter if you want to wear it with a nipped in high waist look.. these coats with this shape are really the most flattering to wear..!!

the crochet is decorated with ruched mesh, gathered cotton lace, satin ribbon roses, and on the very bottom, under the scalloped hem of the crochet cloth, more ruched mesh and another layer of a wide satin trim in a pretty latte colour with a embroidered pattern edging.. yards and yards of lace on this full circle hemline.. very full and swirly..!! just devine... !

a truely gorgeous coat, too much detail to list..! the pics dont do justice..

I estimate this coat to fit a size MEDIUM/LARGE .. the mannequin it is on measures bust 39", waist 32", hips 40" and is about C cup... just for comparison... but please check the measurements carefully as I dont refund for the garment not fitting.. I try my best to list very accurate measurements and the fabric is stretch so it will fit a good array of shapes and sizes..


underarm to underarm across the front (bust) is 20 inches (51cm) there is stretch in this fabric, its got quite good give to it.. nice stretch cotton velvet..
side to side at point where bodice meets skirty part of coat (at lace casing) 18 inches (46cm)

shoulder to ribbon tie and casing 17 inches (43cm)
shoulder to hem, 45 inches (114cm)

I find a good way to check if it will fit , is to compare the measurements to something else you already own , by measuring the item unstretched and laying flat... thats much easier than trying to measure ourselves and getting it right..!


NB:
*washing instructions.., hand wash in cold and lay flat to dry or on a wide hanger....

*this garment has vintage and hand dyed components.. please wear gently.. imperfections, tiny marks or repairs, if any are part of the charm of wearing beautiful re-created garments.. please know that I would not offer anything that I wouldnt wear myself
