Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Fit for the most glamorous of witches, this 1940s opera cloak in a sumptuous black velvet features a show-stopping gold sequin leaf pattern along the hood, fit and flare silhouette, puffed shoulders and a sweeping skirt. An absolutely bewitching piece that I can't rave about enough! Two button closures only, one at the throat and one at the waist. Fully lined.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 14 inches →bust: 30 to 32 inches →waist: 26 to 28 inches →hips: 32 inches →length: 57 inches →sleeve length: 24 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Small
CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with some minor things to note on the lining: very light water staining near the hem (not visible when worn) and an eraser-size moth nibble. There is a patina on the sequins and a few have small chips, but this is not noticeable when worn. The velvet is a bit more crushed around the hem from wear, but again, this does not impact overall look. This coat is just stunning! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Black with gold sequins, cream lining
MORE INFORMATION: By C.A. Rowell of Germantown, a high-end shop in Philadelphia. No materials or contents labels, but feels like rayon velvet with an acetate lining. Dry clean only.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
