This dress coat is modelled from a 1950’s pale lilac velvet coat which went over a short sleeved dress. I wore the coat as a dress and loved the way it was flattering at the top and just hung heavy at the bottom. The cut of the dress incredible. The front is narrow and the back is wide allowing a flattering Balenciaga type look! The large patch pockets allowed me to wear it for work without needing a handbag!
We’ve adapted this one so that it has covered buttons (as opposed to the original giant perspex ones) and it is made in a wool crepe which feels fantastically luxurious on the skin. The sizes are really generous
