Opera Coat without the Drama

Vogue 1137 reprint of vintage 1950 dress and coat.
I made only the coat and it’s fabulous – swingy and loose without the being frumpy or shapeless. 3/4 length kimono sleeves make it easy to sew too as there are no sleeves to insert and its loose style means there’s no fitting issues either.
I paired it with a 2012 Vogue pencil skirt for a late 1950, moving into 1960 look.
