1920s Silk chiffon beaded coverup jacket - Extra small to Large
An ethereal 1920s light jacket or coverup in shell pink chiffon, with duckegg blue contrast front and loose fit with no closures. The front is detailed with large paisley designs in pink and blue embroidery, handbeaded with glass bugle and seed beads to finish.
Approx 14.5" between 'shoulder seams' which is roughly the blue area of fabric
18" approx from mid shoulder to hem, dipping lower at the sides
In excellent condition, I will note that it has been altered at some point to make the sleeves narrower, leaving a dart under the arms from the larger armhole being nipped in; the seams in the armhole are unfinished and a different thread/bigger stitch has been used here which isn't seen from the outer. A few small pulls to the fabric, minor discolouration to inside back neck edge and small dar grey mark to back shoulder and chest- freshly handwashed.
