Our 'Fit & Flare' coats are designed to be worn over full skirt dresses, so they will not only be the perfect length but they will also accommodate the volume of a fifties style dress. If you choose to have a more flared skirt then you can even wear it over a tulle petticoat!
This coat will look equally as stunning worn over any outfit for a warm and elegant winter coat!
This beautiful coat is made from the heaviest wool used for our coat range. It is made from an authentic Donegal tweed, a pure wool fabric in a buttercup yellow colour. With smart peacock blue wool collar and generous cuffs. We have incorporated the same flattering fit-and-flare silhouette of our classic dresses into our coats and so the bodice of the coat is designed to fit snugly, nip in at the waist and then flare out gradually in the skirt.
The coat fastens with a long classic metal zip which is concealed behind a placket to keep out the chills. The coat has two concealed side pockets so you can keep your hands warm without disturbing the streamlined silhouette.
As with our dresses, you can choose to have the coat made in a standard size or made to measure for an additional £50.
We have a range of fabrics that can be used, and various colours of velvet and other suitable fabrics for the detailing (collar and cuffs), and you can even choose your own lining to be used if you would like to make your coat unique (most cotton fabrics in our fabric cupboard can be used for this!). We can also adjust the length of the sleeves and the length of the skirt to suit you!
Please consult our sizing chart and measurement info "here" before ordering.
The standard skirt length for this coat is 24"-25" - just the bottom of the knee on most people - but please put a note in the "Additional Information" box at the bottom of the page if you would like the skirt on your coat to be made slightly shorter or longer.
This coat will take approximately 3-5 weeks to make and 1-2 days to ship within the UK (or 1-2 weeks for international shipping, depending on location). However, if you would need the coat sooner than that please get in touch and we may be able to arrange an express order.
