I am looking for an ivory full length coat to wear over my dress for my November wedding. I have been searching eBay for two months but so far nothing has come up. I’ve also done a million google searches!
I am in UK, but I’m happy to get it shipped, so any ideas from sites from anywhere in the world gratefully received! (I am a UK size 8 to 10 which is US size 4 to 6.)
Thank you 🙂

What kind of look/fabric are you trying to find?

My dress is ivory duet satin, fitted with a mermaid skirt, so I want something to go with that. I’m not really fussy at this point (not feeling like I can afford to be having found nothing!) but I do want something ivory (although not necessaruly satin) and floor-length. Apart from that I’m flexible – any ideas?

You probably won’t find a floor-length coat anywhere but in a formalwear/wedding/costume store. It might actually be easier to have one made for you. It shouldn’t be hard to find a pattern for a long coat and if necessary lengthen it so it’s floor-length. A seamstress could make it for you and it probably wouldn’t cost as much as purchasing one, if your materials are cheap enough (and you don’t need it to be top quality) Check out Etsy.com’s Alchemy feature, people will bid on the project!
Or here’s a vintage one on Etsy:

I’ve been looking for something similar for my November wedding and I haven’t beeen able to find anything either 🙁
My bridal salon suggested having something made by the seamstress, I am not willing to go that road but it might be something you want to consider.

Hi Tanya2s – Thanks, I had thought about looking for a pattern but thought I’d try this first! Thanks for drawing my attention to Alchemy on Etsy – I wasn’t aware of that before and it’s definitely worth looking into. I also saw that vintage coat onEtsy but thought it might be too big – although I do love it so perhaps I could look into having it taken in. Thanks!
Hi NoveBride08 – Thank you. I think I’ll ask my wedding dress shop for advice when my dress comes in too. Thank you! 🙂

there are some really adorable things here:
I especially like the pirate tuxedo coat towards the bottom. Some of these coats come in more than one color. The prices seem fairly cheap. I’ve never ordered anything from them, but have been intrigued.
