elegant black velvet vintage 1950s swing back opera coat
A classic shape, this black velvet mid century opera coat neatly custom tailored with swing back/flared cut and wide sleeves, it fastens if desired with a simple tie to neckline - but can be happily worn open and as such fits a variety of sizes.
The collar and front edges are slightly stiffened so as to allow the wearer to style them as desired. Internally it has been lined a good quality ivory satin.
I do tend to avoid black coats unless they’ve a particularly good cut, as they’re so hard to photograph well. This looks so much better on a person than my mannequin!
Bust measures at back seam to seam x2 is 44”
Length from nape to hem approx 42”
underarm to cuff approx 15”
Shoulder seam to seam at back just under 16”
Only noted flaw is some age marks left by a hangers in the upper shoulder lining - only visible if you turn it inside out! Please see photo. Useful and wearable.
