VICTORIA SPONGE VELVET COAT
Beautiful to look at and beautiful to wear
Absolutely fabulous coat and it looks and feels of good quality. The plum colour is a real eye opener and makes such a change to the dull autumn coats in some shops. Well done whitestuff.

Delighted - but size up
This coat is absolutely gorgeous, though won't be quite warm enough for the much colder weather. I definitely had to size up to a 12 to leave enough room for a jumper underneath, but despite going up a size, the coat still looks fitted and shapely. The sleeves could be slightly bigger but I do have bingo wings so they are probably fine for most women. The colour is a lovely deep rich purple aubergine, which as another reviewer has said, looks very dark until you get it out into the daylight. Can't wait to wear it!

Purchased this fabulous coat today and am sooooo pleased! Having read other reviews I feel it comes up a little small so I sized up (am quite a booby girl with broad shoulders) so the size 18 gives me a bit more room. It's also got a little bit of stretch to boot. Have teamed it with W/s Abstract Floral scarf and I feel so glam! Must mention the Ipswich W/s style gurus Julie, Jo and Debbie who are always on hand to give such great advice and ideas- they are so patient and a lots of fun. Absolutely thrilled with my new coat!
