Vintage Patchwork Quilt Coat Made of 1940s Vintage Ties
This is a completely amazing coat and looks to have never been worn. The condition is excellent outside of the natural patina of the vintage ties that were used. On the exterior are various men's rayon ties that have been cut and opened and then patched together to make up that fantastic patchwork quilt feel. Inside is a bright robins egg blue lining that has a big red cross stitch to heighten the quilted feel of the exterior. The coat is cut to be generous and loose through the body. The collar is neat and pounded and the buttons that run down the front are hand covered with more bits of vintage items. It is, quite simply, one of those fabulous items that you are only ever going to find in the vintage world a a real little treasure. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a blue cotton and closes at the front with snaps that are hidden under the three covered buttons. Extremely minor wear and natural patina from age to some of the ties (there is a slight thinning of the fabric on one shoulder that is the only real flaw I see and its minor - I have photoed it for you). For its age and the age of the ties its pretty fabulous. The loose cut will fit a variety of sizes
Bust: to 23" flat across from side seam to side seam
