Eleanor Lea Military Style Suit

    Eleanor Lea Military Style Suit

    Code: 121015-6

    Military influenced clothing was always popular during the Victorian period, especially after the Civil War. This beautifully-appointed suit is made up in cotton twill. The gently-fitted jacket is double breasted, with a high neckline and long sleeves. Wonderful metallic buttons march down the front in two rows, and add interest to small epaulettes at the shoulders, and tabs at the cuffs. The hemline of the jacket is split in the front into two V shapes, then rises slightly over the hips, and finishes with a gentle curve at the small of the back. The matching skirt is available in your choice of boot length or floor length, and is gathered into a comfortable elastic waist. Designed and made by Recollections in America. 100% cotton. Hand wash cold water, tumble dry low, or dry clean. Ellie also wears boots and crinoline, which are available priced separately.

    What size should I order?

    Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.

    An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.

    In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.

    Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
