Make a statement in this truly fabulous coat from the late 1950s or early 60s. A shade of green between kelly and emerald (mid-tone, rich green without any yellow). Over-elbow puffed sleeves just right with or without evening gloves. Seaming detail at shoulders and bust provides shape. Slight swing silhouette reaches near-ankle (depending on your height) length. Fully lined in darker-green satin. Portrait collar. The single, large, covered button slips into a hand-stitched buttonhole. This coat would look wonderful with any hair color or skin tone. Wear it over your party dress day or night and be prepared to turn heads!
We show the coat over a little black velvet shelf-bust dress, available here.
