"Winter Warmth" Vintage 1940's Red Bouclé Wool Princess Coat UK 8-10

This breathtaking 1940's red bouclé wool heavy winter coat, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her scalloped collar is framed by dropped shoulder seams, and bright red button fastenings down the centre front.
Her incredible double cuffed sleeves, boast box pleats from the top of the lowered shoulder seam, that fall into balloon cuts, edged with a wide turned up cuffs. Her second cuffs fall just below and are attached to the sleeve lining, which is then edged with a bouclé wool cuff with a single button to each side.
Her fitted bodice, is accented by a rounded seam along the yokes, and front princess seams, that join the cinched in waistline seam.
Her full skirt-line, with 2 hidden front side pockets, mimics the volume in the sleeve, in an elegant princess cut.
The lining of the coat is decorated with a printed pattern of poodles, and is in turn lined in wool, which is felt in the incredible weight of the coat.
