1940s Tweed Swing Coat Ensemble XS


Amazingly warm and so chic at the same time. Vintage brown and ivory nubby woven tweed swing coat and matching flared skirt ensemble. The coat has all the details - a strong (but not overly dramatic) raglan cut shoulder, notched cuffs, chunky horn buttons, extra flared hem, crepe lining, smart collar and huge patch pockets with decorative embroidered arrow/welt detail on top. The coat can fit a range of sizes, while the simple flared skirt is fixed at 24" waist. Coat has a "Coat and Suit Industry National Recovery Board" and Claire Peroue of Paris/Detroit labels. Skirt has a label "Harvey Berin, designed by Karen Stark". Circa 1940s/1950s. 

• Size XS-M for coat, skirt only XS (see measurements)
