Vintage 1940s black net bolero jacket with iridescent gelatine sequins
Wonderful shoulder line, sequins are a scrolling tulip design. The full length sleeves fasten with self fabric buttons and loops - miraculously none missing!
This would look amazing over a plain black dress - even a 30s bias cut satin!
Bust should fit most as draped, but back is 40” at underarm doubled
Length from nape to hem 17” not including collar
underarm to cuff 19”
shoulder seam to seam approx 16.5”
A couple of loose ends I have secured. Overall very good, you can tell the sequins are aged but they are still effective. I found one historic repair to a seam.
It’s been painstakingly home made, I think? Hand finishing to hems and bound selvedges etc.
