Victorian or Edwardian Ladies Jacket by OldCuriosityCostumes

Two-piece burgundy wool suit, 1908. During the Victorian and Georgian periods, certain elements seen on military uniforms were reworked into women’s fashion, especially on women’s riding habits and coats. Occasionally, woman’s fashionable garments, such as this two-piece burgundy wool suit, adopted a few military elements like frog closers, chevrons on the sleeves, and a particular style of jacket.
