Approximate measurements (laid flat):
Armpit to armpit 17 inches
Centre neck to hem 35 inches
Armpit to armpit: 18 inches
Length from back of neck to hem: 35 inches
Condition: In good wearable condition. On inspection some of the triangles have been re-stitched. The coat has some scuffs to the fabric when looked at under a bright light. These issues do not overly impact on the beauty of this outfit.
