The 'Fox and Geese' Cocoon Coat is a straight-cut style with a shawl collar, an exaggerated drop shoulder, slight dolman curve to the underarm, and a wide sleeve, complete with inseam side pockets. This coat features a lightweight quilt that is both hand-stitched and quilted, so has excellent drape and perfect for layering or on it's own. The 1800s fabrics highlighted here are truly stunning.
This quilt is in great vintage condition with some of the pencil lines they drew as a guide for hand quilting still visible and some sun faded areas. These are not viewed as flaws, but rather giving it character and showing it's history. I have done my best to capture these areas in the photos, but is possible that not all are photographed. Please review all images as returns are not accepted - no exceptions.
Measurements (taken flat across) - due to the oversized fit, this can accommodate a range of sizes - it is best to measure a coat you already own:
Length (from shoulder to hem): 29.5"
Sleeve (from top of the shoulder against the neck to sleeve opening - as a reminder, the sleeves have been left intentionally long for cuffing): 30"
Chest (open style so very flexible): 24.5"
