This product is unavailable

This is a quality black velvet opera coat dating to the early 1930s. The coat features a small rounded shirred collar and gorgeous shirring where the batwing sleeves meet the body. The coat is fully lined in cream colored silk satin. The coat does up with a strap that ties through a loop affixed to the left open edge at the waistline. The neckline does up with a loop and button, however, the button is missing. I haven't replaced the button because its position may depend on individual fit.

Color: Black
