M US women's letter

Lovely early 50s, New Look, fit and flare, princess coat. A Chatsworth by Lurie & Saunders, it has inset shoulders, a long shawl collar and a 12 panelled skirt with a generous 152" sweep. Long darted sleeves increase to puff out generously at the centre before narrowing to the cuff. There are two well hidden side pockets and two plastic buttons at the waist. It does up offside with one bound button hole. The interior is fully lined in a weighty shimmery synthetic satin, most likely rayon, with ties that thread through a threaded loop to keep the coat in place. Beautifully made in a medium weight cloth that may be a wool or a blend and possibly a fused back knit. It drapes beautifully. There is no interlining. Very well made, stylish New Look coat!

NOTE: the button was moved over from its original position at one time and that is why the buttons look slightly off centre. The move left no physical evidence on the cloth and the button may easily be moved back to its original position should you wish.

Modeled on a US size 3/4 dress form.

Vintage size label: none and we estimate, with the button in its current position, it would best fit a current US size medium (8). If the button was moved back to its original position a small (6).
