Another black jacket

We have already seen An 1890s jacket from the collection at Market Lavington Museum. We have various black Victorian jackets and capes. For our 2023 display on The Oak Settle, one of our dummies is wearing a very elegant black jacket from the 1880s or 1890s.

We hope our visitors will stop and take a good look at this garment and wonder at all the work that went into making it. It has a stand up silk collar and silk cuffs.

It has seventeen covered buttons and buttonholes.

It is tailored into a narrow waistline, with a peplum at the back.

Inside, we see a large amount of boning, a waistband and a lot of hand stiching.
