Dark Blue on Black Devore Velvet 1930s Style Evening Jacket / Kimono Wrap

Sale price$120.00
Only 1 available


This jacket is effortless glamour - an extra layer for the evening - something you can simply shrug on, to go from daytime to evening or to keep from getting cold when the weather is changeable.  Loose Kimono sleeves and generous draping at the back - easy to wear over almost everything.

Made from a lovely Devore Velvet - dark blue velvet on semi-transparent black in a 'Florentine' design.  Seams are enclosed - French Seams. There are beads at the front corners and on the point of the back drape (so it hangs nicely & for extra glam!)
The beads are glass - small 'Harlequin' blue black faceted and hand made blue glass ... see the close up photo for one of the front corners and the 'fall' of beads on the back drape.

I took the pattern for this ingenious evening jacket from a 1930's garment. In the 1930s the emphasis was on the back - especially in evening wear and the ingenious design wastes no fabric (glamour without enviro-guilt !)

This garment is 'one-size-fits-all' but as a guide - the model in the photos is myself and I'm short (5foot 2) & plump.
