Amazing antique early 1910s tailored fine black wool walking suit in near pristine condition! The tailored Edwardian skirt and jacket look amazing together, but I love that you can also wear them as separates too. The 8 paneled skirt is floor length with a wonderful sweep. She has a nipped waistline that's fitted through the upper hip featuring 6 fabric covered accent buttons on both sides front and back. An edged seam encompasses the button accents and pleats emerging underneath falling into lovely waves to the hem. The skirt closes center back with snaps and a top hook/eye closure. An inner grosgrain band encircles the waist and a small band of tissue taffeta encircles the inner hem.
The tailored jacket is fabulous and versatile - I've shown her with her collar worn three different ways. She closes with three buttons down front (not including button at neckline) with a split front hem and mini horizontal slit pockets. The sides feature open slits accented with simulated button hole silk embroidery down each side. Flattering vertical plaits extend down the center back nearly to the hem and an overlapping waistband encircles the waist. The jacket is fully lined with black silk tissue taffeta.
