* VINTAGE EMERALD GREEN BROCADE CLUTCH EVENING COAT WITH HUGE BUTTONS ON SLEEVES IN SHAMROCK
A beautiful vintage floral and leaf brocade evening coat in a deep shade of emerald green large button decorations on the sleeves. From the late '50s - Early '60s. Raglan sleeves. Lined. The color of the evening coat is beautiful emerald green which was hard to capture but the color is very much like the other evening coat I have although the color did not come out correctly for this one.
I love the huge self covered buttons in expensive bound buttonhole. One rarely sees bound buttonholes anymore because they take a lot of time to make and are expensive! Perfect for a glamorous evening out especially at Christmas!
Designer: No tag
Size: No tag but I wear a size 10 and it fit me and may fit some just a bit larger since there is no closures on the coat and it is a clutch style but go by the measurements. It will also fit smaller sizes since it is a clutch and you can pull it closer to your body.

Bust: Appx 49
Sleeve from neck: 16-1/2

Condition: Very good - a small tear at the end of a decorative buttonhole on the sleeve which will take a couple of stitches to pull together or the cleaners can do it or just leave it as no one would probably notice itl. Shown with a white "x" in one photo. (Photo)

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.
