As I have mentioned before, I am back at the Costume Museum and we are preparing for an exhibit in a few weeks. One of the items on display is an Edwardian jacket with lace inserts. I would wear this today. May be not in white because I can’t keep anything white for long. I’d no sooner put it on and I’d run afoul of a pot of tomato sauce.
(Ignore the odd pink fabric near the bottom. It is the lining of the skirt which was being held up for steaming.)
The buttons are Dorset buttons.
The buttons are also featured on the sleeves.
In the side view, there is a small lace panel and button at the hip just under the sleeve.
The jacket was paired with a dark green skirt. And this is what it looks like all steamed out.
