Elegant silhouette on this vintage Saks Fifth Avenue coat dress. Could be worn as a light overcoat or a dress. Slightly puffed sleeves with buttoned cuffs, one left breast pocket accented with a button, no lining, navy piping detail at collar, shoulder and cuffs. I estimate the age at late 1950s/early 1960s from the style of the Saks Fifth Avenue label; the label resource library of the Vintage Fashion Guild was my reference. The fabric on this piece is quite interesting when looked at closely as the brown takes on a metallic look, the three colors in the fabric are navy, white and copper. No slits, two kickpleats in front and one in center back. The tailoring is well done but seems unfinished. Most of the seams on the inside are left raw, with the exception of the hem finished with navy rayon binding tape. There are 8 buttons down the front and two buttons at each cuff. Three darts at back of neck (see detail). The only flaw is that a 2" area of the seam has come undone underneath the left arm but a very easy repair. No other flaws that I can see. Fabric is in excellent condition but not sure of the material. Bust: 36"" Waist: 30" Length: (shoulder to hem): 40" Sleeve Length: 22"
