Very decadent, plush purple cotton velvet
Tapered bottom hem; 54" length at back
Ruffled black taffeta collar
Satin ribbon lacing at back
Women’s size small, but fits up to waist size 33"
Looks very dashing over a corset and long dress
Listing includes only coat, (none of the black clothing or floral corset pictured)
I used cotton velvet for the exterior, and broadcloth for the lining. Coodinating black taffetta for the collar and satin ribbon for the back lacing. Metal buttons
Simplicity 2172 pattern
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
