>Stormy Weather Inspirations- Winter Coats Circa 1934

>

 With much of the country covered in snow I felt ashamed to be continuing my little sportswear summer clothes posts, so today I have loads of scans of nice and toasty 1930s coats.  These are from an undated catalog, but by the styles throughout this catalog I’m guessing it’s from around 1934.  Even if you’re not a fur gal, you could make any of these up in a nice faux fur, or just omit the fur altogether.  Maybe they can serve as inspiration for my Nora Charles Coat pattern, or maybe you can jazz up a coat you already have with fun detachable cuffs and collar.  I was tickled to see another example of my favorite coat of the moment, the polo coat.  I really do need to make myself up one of those… and I do happen to have a stash of vintage camel hair yardage I’m commandeered from my husband…
Pic overload! Like usual, click on the pictures for a hi res copy :)

 
 

Totally off topic, but I was watching “On the Avenue” today and I noticed in the opening scene they used the same beds they used for “The Great Ziegfeld” a year earlier. I just love noticing little things like that :) Apologies if the sound isn’t good… I can’t check it on my computer since I don’t have streaming audio.
