This fabulous Victorian power suit is a must have! The asymmetrical front closure on the twill jacket and braid detail are so very Victorian and period-correct. A small black high collar trimmed in gimp braid, matching black deep cuffs and long full pleated peplum - ample enough to accommodate a bustle - complete this romantic look. Faceted buttons adorn the cuffs and braid detail on the jacket front. The black twill 3-gore skirt features a comfortable elastic waist. Dry clean only. Priced separately: boots, parasol,crinoline, jewelry, gloves, and hat. You will discover yourself looking for excuses to wear this lovely outfit. Recollections clothing is made in America.
Simple but beautiful suit. The jacket very attractive in the red on black combination as shown in the picture...I was not disappointed! Great design overall and I plan to mix and match the jacket with other skirts.
The skirt itself was very plain. The picture makes the skirt appear more fully gathered in the back with a flatter front. This is not the case, it is fairly uniform all the way around. But is is a decently full skirt and the elastic waist is comfortable. The pockets are a nice feature and disappear completely into the hemlines.
I am very happy and look forward to stepping out in style!

I ordered this suit for my wedding and felt so special on my wedding day. Everything about the the ensemble is number one and my girlfriends raved about the quality and finish.
Thank you Recollections.

Classy Victorian Power Suit
I am pleased with the power suit style, love the pockets in the skirt. A corset will help the jacket to fit right(a little tight right now), the skirt is just fine especially since it has a gathered waist. My plan is to wear this outfit at Christmas events as a member of the Elks Opera House Guild here in Prescott, Arizona.
