Vibrant evening jacket in stunning paisley print.
Commercially made in the 1930s, this beautiful jacket has a bold paisley print in orange, yellow and green. An unusural fabric, it feels like textured crepe but the fabric is actually backed with a very fine net, which I'm assuming has something to do with the textured effect. An edge to edge design. it has neat little turned back lapels which are tacked in place, puff sleeves and pockets! The back yoke joins to the main jacket in chevron points.
Condition Very good with the following minor points to note;
- there is a 5mm hole on the cuff edge to the left sleeve
- some wear to the cuff opening on the right sleeve
- the label is missing, there is evidence on the left inside shoulder seam that there was a manufacturers label there
- the back yoke section has been pressed at some point and that has caused the fine net lining to come away from the main body of the jacket - isn't something you instantly notice unless you feel the piece
Although the flat bust is a good size, this piece isn't meant to be worn close fitting and is quite narrow on the shoulders so please consider this fact when deciding if this will fit.
Flat bust 20"
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Underarm sleeve length 17.5"
