Black Velvet Opera Coat with Bellow Sleeves
A soft luxurious velvet makes this black velvet opera coat a classic. At first glance a gentle straight silhouette and simple collar project demure sophistication. However, two stunning features demonstrate its over-the-top magnificence the bellow sleeves and white satin lining.
The coat and its sleeves project drama like the opera. Detailed pleating and gathering create the sleeves’ flowing volume and is by far its premier characteristic. Two covered velvet buttons position asymmetrically on the collar and waist held by loops. When the coat is opened, stunning white satin contrasts with the black velvet making it extra dramatic. In near perfect condition the white shows no soiling or tears.
Flat the coat measures 20″ across the bust from armhole to armhole. The waist measures 20″ with the hips measuring 23″. The total length of the coat is 34″. Across the shoulders measures 14″. The voluminous sleeve measures 23″ from shoulder to cuff and 15″ from armhole to cuff.
An impression on the outer body of the coat is the coat’s only imperfection. Due possibly to an iron, the impressed velvet measures 4″ round. No pockets.
