* VINTAGE CUT VELVET FALLING LEAVES AND FLORAL JACKET IN BEAUTIFUL FALL COLORS
A beautiful vintage '60s / '70s tapestry-like cut velvet jacket adorned with falling leaves and fall flowers. There is a high-low pile to the cut velvet jacket.
The colors which were hard to capture and are much prettier in real life. 3/4 sleeves. Colors are Frosted Cranberry, Moss, Apricot, Burnt Terracotta and Smoky Teal on an ivory background. (The background on the jacket is a lighter shade of ivory than shown in the photos.) Heavy ivory satin lining. No tags inside the jacket. Slanted pockets on the front. The jacket is pretty heavy because of the fabric.
An interesting notation on how cut velvet is made thanks to Wikipedia and my thanks to them:
Velvet is woven on a special loom that weaves two thicknesses of the material at the same time. The two pieces are then cut apart to create the pile effect, and the two lengths of fabric are wound on separate take-up rolls.
A beautiful Fall jacket which would look beautiful over a dress or over a top with jeans or slacks.
By: No tag
Size: No tag so go by the the measurements for a good fit. The jacket is shown on my size 6 model; however, I am a Size 10 and it fit me but will not fit a larger size.
Appx Measurements - The measurements are of the jacket - not your figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: 42 with no closures but go by the shoulder to shoulder measurement because you do not want the back to be too tight
Shoulder to shoulder: 15-1/2
Sleeve from neck to end: 22
Fabric: Cut velvet with a heavy satin lining.
Care: No tag but dry clean
Condition: Very good - some soiling on the INSIDE front flaps and maybe some elsewhere but they pretty much blend in with all of the other colors in the jacket. One pocket is lined with the same ivory satin as inside the jacket. Looks like the other pocket was replaced at one time and is a gray satin but you cannot see this unless you look inside the pocket and no one is going to be doing that. There is a seam under the collar which has opened a fraction and can be pulled together with a few stitches. The collar covers it so it would not be seen even if you do not do that.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
