This is an utterly charming jacket.
Made in the 1930s, this fabulous felt jacket is so vibrant and fun. Made from medium weight felt with striped cuffs and front bands, it has hand embroidery up the front and on the sleeve ends. It fastens with one statement button but also has two hidden poppers to help keep the line. Bust darts give beautiful shaping and the cropped style makes it perfect to wear with a skirt or trousers.
It is a good size and will comfortably fit a 40" or 42" bust but to make sure this will work for you please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own.
Flat bust 22"
Underarm sleeve length 16"
Shoulders between sleeves 17"
Good/very good with a few small points to note;
- there is some slight shoulder fade - see photo
- there are some small darns/inside patches. These are really small and there are three on the left front and 2 on the right - see photos
- there is some minor grazing to the surface layer of felt in some areas
The issues are all small and this is still an absolutely exquisite piece.
