FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - GLAMOROUS VINTAGE KASHMIRACLE SHEARLING CAPE LIKE COAT - ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!
From my own personal collection
An absolutely stunning vintage swing coat by Kashmiracle. I have had this glamorous coat for decades although I have never worn it. No one else may have either since there is a paper tag still attached to the inside of the coat with a miniature staple and it is in excellent condition.
The satin tag on the inside of the coat says "Kashmiracle Coat - Looks Like Cashmere Feels Like Cashmere ".The color of the coat is a cream shade or winter white. The fabric is lush and soft and feels like cashmere.
The sleeves which are fabulous almost form a "cape like" effect as they "rest" on top of the coat. The fur is a shearling and it is very wide, luxurious and very soft . There is a matching tie which extends out from the collar which can be worn in front of back. The buttons are silver tone and a deep cream. I believe they are metal but it is hard to tell.
There are 2 satin pockets in the seams of the coat. The lining is in heavy bridal satin and it is impecable.
Abolutely beautiful and so glamorous! One never sees coats made like this anymore!

Size: No size but I wear size 8 - 10 & closer to to size 10 & it fit me perfectly & will fit other sizes as well. The paper tag inside says size 18 but that is vintage sizing and does not apply as manufacturers sizings changed in approximately the 60s/ 70s.
Sleeve from neck: 26
Shoulder to shoulder: Cannot measure because of the way the sleeves were cut and put in the coat
Condition: Very good - I do not think the coat was every worn. I know that I have had it in a coat storage bag for decades and I do not think anyone else has worn it. A very light nibble on the bodice which I nearly missed as is is so unnoticeable. There could possibly be some more that I might have missed but it doesn't look like it. Store mark on the INSIDE of the coat on the back which no one is going to see.

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.
