The Walnut 1970s Velvet Coat

Walnut is an absolutely stunning 1970s brown velvet trench style coat by Mansfield with a beautiful drawstring style belt and button front closure. She has a gorgeous cut and is constructed beautifully. She will make a fantastic addition to any wardrobe.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to her drawstring waist. She would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 best. Very possibly a small 14 too.

Bust - 38"

Waist - 36" when waistband is fully open, can be drawn right in to suit all waist sizes. 

Length -  44"

Sleeve - 16"

Shoulder to shoulder - 14.5"

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

Walnut has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please have her dry cleaned or spot clean when needed. She is in good vintage condition, she has some minor signs of wear to her velvet, which are to be expected. Very minor and unnoticeable. 

 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.
