FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - BEAUTIFUL EDWARDIAN-LOOK LACE, SATIN BEADED BROCADE JACKET IN BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE - NEW - LARGE
From my own personal collection, a beautiful new Edwardian-look lace, satin beaded brocade-like jacket in Bittersweet Chocolate. Although the jacket has been in my collection & I bought it new, I have not worn it. I need more room in my closet so many of my own collection, a lot unworn, will have to go.
The color is a deep rich dark chocolate with a lighter shade as well in a lovely design. There is heavy ivory lace, satin & beading around the neck, down the front & on the cuffs. There are also 3 rows of sparkling vertical beads on either side of the jacket. Easy closure with hidden hooks & eyes down the front. Tiny gathers on the tops of the sleeve for a victorian look. Gathers under the rows of beading with a modified peplum.
The back of the jacket has a curved set in yolk & small pleats with sparkling beads encrusted on them - curved princess seaming front & back - fully lined
It would be beautiful with or without a silk cami under it with skirts, evening pants or jeans as well as with a dress.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
