Edwardian Jacket Plush Velvet Lace
A loose flare shapes the silhouette of this Edwardian jacket. A sturdy soft velvet project a practical purpose to this jacket. Possibly for riding, the shape is functional and stately.
Lace and cording accent the bodice, cuffs and hem. Details like hand picking on the lining and crocheted buttons showcase Victorian quality.
The outer velvet body shows little visible aging. This includes the lace, cording, crocheted buttons on the front and back of the jacket. However, repair issues appear on the lace on the left hem scalloping the bottom. Also the lace on the left sleeve is entirely gone.
The upper lining in the body and sleeves preserved well. However, the bottom part of the lining near the hips made of a silk satin brocade shows deterioration. Although fabric shows oxidation, it does not compromise the functionality of the lining.
Under the crocheted button rests an inner placket that connects the jacket with six small buttons. The hidden placket shows the most wear. The first three of the six buttonholes display tears.
Flat the jacket measures 16″ across the shoulders. 18″ across the bust from armhole to armhole. 18″ across the waist and 22″ across the hips. The sleeves measure 20″ from shoulder to cuff and 16″ from armhole to cuff.
With care and attention this jacket could be restored back to its original glory.
