VINTAGE LILLI DIAMOND BLACK VELVET OR VELVETEEN CLUTCH COAT WITH HUGE SHAWL COLLAR
A lovely vintage velvet or velveteen clutch coat with a huge shawl collar by Original Lilli Diamond of California. Perfect with cocktail dresses when you want to look glamorous.
The coat is in a rich feeling velvety fabric. There is a large shawl collar with some gathering around neck for fullness. Long sleeves. No buttons on the coat as it is a clutch coat and it is supposed to be "clutched" closed with one's hands and that it is why it is called a clutch coat. Completely lined with a rustley black taffeta. Some photos have been lightened so the detail can be seen.
A lovely vintage black velvet or velveteen clutch coat which would be beautiful over your evening gowns or cocktail dresses.

No tag - I wear a size 10 & although I got it on, the sleeves were about an inch shorter than I would have liked but if one were wearing gloves, it would not make a difference so go by the measurements but would probably fit a size 6 or 8 better
Bust: all the way around 46-1/3
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.
Sleeve from neck: 27
Shoulder to shoulder: 16
Fabric: No tag but a velvet fabric with a taffeta lining
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - a few almost minute pinholes in the taffeta lining which no one would see - some bruising of the velvet which is natural in vintage velvet but no one would notice at night when wearing - yellowing on the mfg tag - 2” of one armhole in the seam needs to be pulled together - easy fix - price has been adjusted for small imperfections.

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.
