Late 1940's original vintage brown patterned wool coat dress.

Features a high collar, button over bodice, which closes with press studs and three feature buttons (vintage Aquascutum, so not original to this dress) with bound buttonholes, seamed waist, bracelet length sleeves with elbow seams, and has two pleats to the front. The wool fabric is mid to heavy weight and the dress is fully lined, including sleeves, with a soft peach rayon.

Best fit: small approx UK10 US6
Bust: 34"
Shoulders: 14"
Waist: 29"
Hips: up to 40"
Length: 40 1/2" (there are a spare 2 inches in the hem)
Sleeves: 20"

Label: no

Condition: Excellent apart from a few very small rips and marks to the upper lining, which is nice and clean otherwise | Clean and ready to wear

Details: I would suggest this was made by a professional seamstress. The dress has a mix of hand and machine stitches and is finished very neatly. There are couture details - the hem is edged in the same fabric as the linings, the dress also has overcast seams and bound buttonholes plus the construction of the front bodice is pretty marvellous.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear. Please note, the shipping costs reflect the weight of the garment.
