Elegant Late 1940s New Look Rayon Faille Navy Blue Coat Dress with Belled Sleeves
This vintage Late 1940s (right around 48-49) New Look Suzy Perette coat dress is completely versatile! It can be worn all buttoned up as a dress, or paired with another ensemble as a coat. The navy blue rayon faille is sleek and lightweight, with beautiful drape. This piece offers a nipped waist, strong shoulders with medium sized shoulder pads, and ultra full skirt. No doubt, the crowning achievement of this piece is the gorgeous belled sleeves. The cuffs have sturdy elastic sewn into them, gathering the generous volume of fabric. There is no stuffing added to the photos, this is simply how they lay when worn. The dress fastens with self fabric covered buttons down the front.
Hips: 44", but really more open due to the volume of fabric
Label: Suzy Perette
Material: Rayon Faille
Condition: Good plus
There is a faint discoloration on the upper back, most likely from being worn for too long in the sun. This only became visible to my eye when checking for condition issues. I find no other issues to note.
