Early 1900’s coat

We all know that I’m a fan of the Victorian era fashions but some of the Edwardian fashions appeal to me for modern wear.  The coat I will show you today is just such a thing.IMG_20180508_193048938_HDR

It is part of the Costume Museum of Canada and will be going on display at the end of the month.

It is attributed to the Eaton’s store.

I love the detail on the lapel and sleeves.
