1940s Dorothy Thompson of California Desmonds Glamorous Caramel Long Suede Dress Coat Noir -S M

Sorry, this item has sold.

I am so pleased to offer this truly glamorous 1940's coat!

The coat is a caramel brown color and is made of a very soft suede. It is fully lined in satin with built in shoulder pads, and has two slit pockets. There are two buttons at the waist and one at the neckline, and the waist has gathering to it to make it give more of a fitted look. The sleeves have a button closure at the cuff, but one is missing.

This coat is such a timeless garment, and I really feel a piece of history when looking at it!

The suede fabric is really soft and the lining is very smooth. The main flaw, depicted in the last picture is at the neckline where the seam has opened on the right side. At the waist where the buttons are, are starting to pull away from the coat, also depicted. There is a button missing at the right sleeve. There is a light water stain on the inside lining (does not show to the outside), and some worn suede spots here and there.
