So soft -- and practically perfect in every way! :)
Vintage 1940s black velvet Lilli Ann long sleeve fitted suit jacket with Peter Pan collar, narrow sleeve and tiered hem detail.
Near perfect vintage condition; little to no wear from age and use. Only flaw is some extremely minor fading to inside lining (pictured). No other flaws whatsoever to note on inside or outside; no holes, rips, tears, worn areas, open seams, stains, markings or other discoloration.
Made of truly gorgeous, perfect & soft black velvet. No visible flaws to note on velvet; entire coat is very clean.
Collar is a round, Peter Pan design with one hook-and-eye set underneath (see photo) for a polished, secure fit at neckline. Shoulder pads present and in good, sturdy condition.
Five round, faceted black buttons down center of front. Buttons are all clean with no chips, cracks, major scratches or markings.
Sleeves are somewhat narrow and fitted with a small slit and wing design at each wrist (see photo).
Bottom of coat has two tiered horizontal that create a slightly exaggerated hip & accentuate the hourglass silhouette. These are not pockets, just panels of velvet.
Made by Lilli Ann (see photo of label). A 'Velour De Nord' Lilli Ann label is also present, along with a label for 'McKelvy's' and a union label (all pictured).
Freshly dry-cleaned. Dry-cleaning recommended for future care.
