Best fits a modern women's large. See measurements for best fit. Taylor is 5'3 with a 25" waist/34B bust. It is very oversized on her.



Good condition considering the very old age (estimated early 60s but could be even older). Lining has stains but not noticeable when wearing. There is discoloration and wear at parts all over. Spot at back. Some tears and rips in the lining as well on some of the trim. A bit tattered but overall still an amazing piece. Zoom in on all photos for close-up details of condition.

NOTE: Vest is not perfect by any means but we think the wear gives it so much character - there's probably so much history with this intricate vest. It's an amazingly constructed and quite heavy!  This vest that is a true statement piece. The detail is beyond anything you find nowadays.  

Measurements (taken from size small, unstretched):

Length from top of shoulder: 20”
Armpit to armpit: 20”
Shoulder to shoulder: 15.5” from edge to edge
