BEAUTIFUL ~ SUMPTUOUS ~ OPULENT ~ ELEGANT


♥ 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 

Loving this coat so much!!! 


Excellent vintage condition. Labelled with vintage label ~ reads : Elizabeth Truro.

Gorgeous smooth short pile thick Cotton Velvet in a vibrant rich purple ~ perfect for day wear, and especially for evening ear ~ fully lined in thick high quality sumptuous purple satin. ~

♥ SIZE: There is no size label in this coat ~ we are estimating size based on measurements.
Please see measurements below ~ and please ask for any extra measurements you might need to be sure of fit ~ we'll do all we can to help you.

UK 8 - 14 ~ estimated 


EURO 36 - 42 - estimated


US 4/6 - 12 - estimated



Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.


♥ MEASUREMENTS:

Bust ~ armpit to armpit ~ across front ~ approx: 19 - 20 inches.

Waist ~ approx: 15 inches.

Length ~ taken from collar ~ down back of jacket to bottom of hem ~ approx: 46 inches.

All measurements taken with garment laid flat so please double up for all the way around where appropriate.

Please use the measurements provided to measure against a similar garment of your own which you know fits you well.

All measurements are taken with the garment pulled a bit to flatten ~ and please be aware that there is inevitably a slight discrepancy in the ways different people measure ~ so all measurements are approximate and please give or take about a 1/4 inch or so either way.





Any QUESTIONS please ask!


LASTLY, IN TWO WORDS........BEAUTIFULLY UNUSUAL! xxx
