♥ DESCRIPTION: A really stunning, very rare to find, true 1940s vintage, smooth and luxurious cotton velvet promenade coat in THE MOST sumptuous purple ~ with vintage label which reads : Elizabeth Truro ~ featuring a v-neckline framed by a large elaborate draped shawl collar which reaches the shoulders & folds down deeply at back of the jacket. ~ The coat is tailored beautifully to create a fitted bodice which comes in deeply at the waist, creating that very 40s 'nipped in' waist look, and closes here at the waist with three stunning glass faceted buttons. ~ From the waist, the very full and long skirt flares out hugely and falls into deep pleats ~ which is very elegant and so flattering to all body shapes. The coat is midi to long, depending on your height. Pockets either side, concealed in side seams. The long sleeves are fabulous also, very distinctly 40s, ending in huge turn back cuffs which add to the WOW factor of this amazing coat.
~ The back is just stunning also ~ with the top of the back skimmed by the generous folded back shawl collar ~ & beautifully tailored to create the gorgeous and flattering curvy hour-glass bodice shape which 'nips in' at the waist, where there is a seam for definition, before subtly flaring out to create the very flared skirt which again, and even more so than at the front, falls into deep and beautiful pleats all the way down. ~ The MOST divine 1940s vintage coat ~ Opulent velvet in such a fabulously rich and sumptuous colour. Fully lined in purple satin, a really heavy satin ~ a thicker and much higher quality of lining fabric than you see today. A very high quality coat, would have been expensive in its day. The fabrics used would have been top quality in their day and no short cuts have been taken where fabric is concerned, very generously cut with masses of fabric used, especially in the skirt.
~ This coat is just BEYOND FABULOUS ~ the soft smooth short pile velvet fabric is so luxurious and sensual, and hangs beautifully~ & the very sexy shape and the delightful rich colour just add that extra touch of vintage heaven ~ a timeless design which never goes out of fashion!!! 40s war bride ~ soldier's sweetheart ~ 30s vamp ~ 1940s debutante ~ very glamorous indeed ~ Edwardian ~ Femme Fatale ~ 50s Hollywood Starlet ~ Dior's New Look...xxx
