The Janis Late 60s Afghan Knit Coatigan


Janis is an absolutely EPIC and truly rare late 60s woodstock era shaggy afghan handknit coatigan by Sears, she has no composition label but feels like a wool blend. Honestly Janis is all kinds of wow, I have quite literally never seen anything as funky as this! She has stunning colours and big chunky yarn with a loose weave and a gorgeous faux fur trim. She is soooo snuggly and chunky, she really is one of the coolest one of a kind finds I have ever sourced!

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 up to UK size 14 nicely.

Bust - up to 39" 

Length -  37"

 

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

Janis has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Spot clean when needed. She is in good condition with a few minor signs of wear, there are areas where her knit is just sort of worn, I guess for being around 50 years old, this is absolutely to be expected! 

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.
