SKU: 00675-002
Sorry, this item has sold.

Vintage Victorian-style peplum jacket in a delicious, deep purple velvet. Hand-worked genuine trapunto embroidery, covered buttons and loops, mandarin collar, and pointed long sleeves. Partial lining. Pinked seams. From the Narissa W. estate.

At first glance we thought this was clearly 1980s, but on closer inspection, it could be older. The fabrics (including rayon hem tape) and feel of it say late 40s/early 50s. There's no sign of shoulder pads (present or former). We just can't be sure, as a possibly home-sewn garment could be constructed with vintage materials and/or techniques.

Shown with a 40s black rayon skirt, available separately.

Labels: none

Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton/silk, dry-clean only

Condition: looks to have been of a decoration or closure at each wrist, now gone (makes no difference). teensy repairs to both underarm seams. there's some fraying at the very top back of the collar, as shown. 

*We've had this vintage velvet jacket professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*

Garment Measurements:
 shoulders: 17"/ 43cm
 sleeves: 24"/61cm + another 1"/ at the point
 bust: 42"/106.5cm
 waist: 32"/81.25cm
 hips at lower edge of peplum: 46"/116.5cm
 length: 23"/58cm

For reference, Delphine measures bust 32"/waist 24", and although we've clipped it gently for the photos, it's still not shown to its best advantage, which will require a curvier wearer. It's also too big on me, and I measure bust 35.5, waist 26.5.

 Our items are not newly manufactured "vintage style" pieces. They are true vintage, at least 30 years old. Please read condition report provided above.
