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.
