Stunning 50s cadbury violet purple silky velvet evening coat / opera duster coat with a fabulous rounded almost cowl collar, bracelet length sleeves swing coat  that is so luxurious. The colour is divine, you can see why this was the colour of royalty and religion, it really is something else. The colour is a deep violet, closer to the second picture.
  • Fastens with hook and eyes.
  • Bracelet length sleeves.
  • Fully lined.
  • Rounded neckline with a feature collar.
  • Flared swing coat.
Measures when laid flat and edge to edge:
  • Underarm bust seam edge to seam edge: 42" (pictured on a 36" bust mannequin) but there is more fabric as the back flares out so could go to 50" but I would say best fit a 40" to 42" bust/
  • 20" across shoulders, they sit dropped
  • Back length from collar seam to hem: 37"
  • Sleeve length: 14.5"
Condition: generally very good to excellent but there is a little issue on the bottom front side there is a little hole and also on the underside hem - please examine photos. This could be stitched and you'll never know the difference, easily remedied.

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
