Vintage 1940s Blue Princess Coat With Large Bow In Back
Fantastically delicious, perfect Princess coat from the late 1940s, perhaps early 50s in deep navy blue. This is and has been one of my favorite things in my shop since I got it. I've had it for a while now just keeping it to look at since it will never ever fit me. A girl can dream though! Oh that stunning drop waist purple satin bow round the back!!!! Feels like a wool crepe to me. Its fully lined in dark burgundy acetate or rayon. The sleeves are full length. There are five buttons up the front. This coat is a statement for sure, and you'll feel gorgeous in it. Label says : D.J Healy, Detroit. I have some history on this particular label. D.J Healy was a fine retailer in Detroit from the later 1800s until the 1960s. They had a few shops but the main building is considered a historical building in Detroit. Probably a small but as its quite hourglass, it could perhaps fit a medium if you've a smaller waist.
Excellent, near mint, vintage condition. I did spot a few marks on the lining inside, but there is really noting worth noting to the exterior at all except perhaps the button holes could do with a minor tightening. Its just so gorgeous. You would never think this is as old as it is.
Measurements taken lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip. Bust: 42" Waist: 27" Hip: full Shoulder to waist: Approx 15" Shoulder to bottom hem: 45"
