Here we have a beautiful black Damask evening coat with a stylish pyramid (Swing) silhouette, circa late 1950's. Fabulous funnel, stand away collar with huge mother of pearl button as fastening. Wide elbow length raglan sleeves and hidden slash pockets complete the look. The coat is fully lined and I can find no flaws, it is in excellent condition. This is a very well made vintage coat and an iconic 1950's style, don't miss it.

Please take a look at some of my other vintage items while you are here. If the photographs aren't enough, feel free to ask for more. I'm always happy to answer questions.

Measurements are taken of bust, waist and hips with garment laying flat and doubled. Please find a garment that fits you well and measure to compare.These are not your body measurements so leave room for comfort. The general guidelines are:
1 1/2" to 4" bust ease
1" waist ease
2" hip ease

Note: some of the clothes that I sell are bigger than the mannequin that I use. Therefore to give an accurate representation of how the garment will look on a larger size body I may pin the clothes so that they fit the mannequin. I do not change the shape or cut of the garment. Please see the measurements listed to ensure a proper fit.
