VINTAGE EARLY 1960s DRAMATIC & STRIKING LILLI ANN CLASSIC WRAP TRENCH COAT WITH BELT IN BUTTER
Creamy butter colored or dark cream with yellow in it fabric in the classic look trench wrap coat. Notched collar with black fabric trim as well as on the ends of the sleeves and the large patch pockets on the front. Large embossed diamond pattern in the fabric. Slimming princess seams. Loop and belt on coat although I like the look of wearing it without the belt and it being worn as a clutch coat. Fully lined with a heavy taffeta lining. A cleaning is advised with all vintage clothing items and would freshen up the coat. Plus the cleaners have the equipment to press items professionally and it would benefit the lining in the coat to do so.
The coat would be perfect for the upcoming Fall and winter season and would look great with black boots and gloves.

Size: Cannot read the size tag - I wear a size 10 & although I could get it on, it was slightly small on me so it would probably fit a small size 8 or a size 6 better but go by the measurements
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: 39 - 40 but can be adjusted as it is a wrap coat
Shoulder to shoulder: 15-1/2
Sleeve from neck: 22-1/2
Length in back: 40
Fabric: No tag but cloth with a diamond design and is probably wool as most coats from that era were
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - mark on label as shown in the photo - a tiny nibble on the front above & over from the pocket but the other side of the coat laps over it and will not be noticed and a pinhead one in back - these can be fixed so they are invisible if you write & ask me how to do it - belt is a deeper shade than coat with more yellow in it than the coat and I think the coat looks prettier without the belt anyhow and worn as a clutch - couple of inches on the belt that has started to come undone but that is an easy fix.
