Regular price £165.00
1950s gorgeous cobalt blue velvet evening coat / opera coat from the exclusive Knightsbridge store Harrods. Bracelet length flared sleeves with a criss cross quilted effect it is so luxurious. The blue velvet evening coats are always glorious colours and in popular demand.
  • I suspect at some point it would have had a fur collar as there are a couple of stitched loops on the front of the coat to attach it, either that or some sort of decorative brooch perhaps.
  • Fastens with a large covered button, off centre just below the neckline.
  • Bracelet length feature sleeves.
  • Fully lined.
  • Rounded neckline.
  • Swing coat.
Measures when laid flat and edge to edge:
  • Underarm bust edge to edge: 44" (pictured on a 36" bust mannequin)
  • 50" hip
  • 15.5" across shoulders
  • Back length from collar seam to hem: 39"
  • Sleeve length: 16.5"
Condition: very good the only issue is that it's a little creased, I'll leave it hanging and will give it a steam. Also the lining looks like someone has sprayed something on it, as there are palr droplet stains which you can see clearly in the images, be sure to examine all photos. This is just on the inside though and doesn't appear to have affected the outer velvet.

You are welcome to collect or try on from my shop in Somerton, UK.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
