Bordeaux is a stunning and super rare early 1970s woven tapestry coat. These coats are the HOLY GRAIL of vintage coats and are the most stylish you can get and they rarely ever come up for sale! She is maxi in length with a gorgeous penny collar and has a front button closure with beautiful berry coloured buttons. She is lined in a gorgeous vibrant berry toned lining and is beautiful quality. Her tapestry is simply stunning and it just truly does sing to me! Wear over an epic dress with boots or pair with denim, she is timeless and eternally chic. I know Bordeaux will be well loved in her next home!
THIS IS A HEAVY ITEM AND THAT DOES MEAN POSTAGE IS MORE ON THIS PIECE! FEAR NOT.. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!
This girl would work on UK sizes 4/6/8 best.
Bust - up to 35"
Waist - 28"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Bordeaux has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. She is in good condition with a few minor signs of wear.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
