1970s Vintage Embroidered Sheepskin Coat w Mongolian Lamb S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a 1970s vintage embroidered sheepskin coat with a suede exterior, shearling interior and Mongolian lamb fur trim. These vintage embroidered sheepskin coats were quite popular at the time, but good examples are now hard to find. This one is made of brown suede with pink and black stitched embroidery. It has Mongolian lamb trim down the open edge, at the bottom and at the cuffs. There is a pocket at either side of the coat. The coat does up with three hooks and loops. This is an authentic example, so there are no labels.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this vintage embroidered sheepskin coat should fit a small size, maybe XS, please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the suede and fur into account:
Shoulders: 15 1/2” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 22” long, including the fur cuff
Sleeve Inseam: 15” long, including the fur cuff
Bust: 35” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 31” around
Hips: 35” around
Overall length: 43"
Condition: This vintage embroidered sheepskin coat is in very good condition with only a few surface scratches to the upper right sleeve (see last close-up photo). There are a couple of bald spots to the interior fur, but I think this is original to the making of the coat (see 2nd to last photo). The top hook closure is half detached, but this just needs to be sewn, very minor. Otherwise, this is a nice, clean example of one of these vintage embroidered sheepskin coats, very well preserved for its type.
This vintage embroidered sheepskin coat has a wonderful boho look - difficult to find nice examples like this!
