I would wear this today!

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.)img_20180502_184043303.jpg

The buttons are Dorset buttons.IMG_20180502_184055978

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.
