Numerous dress possibilities - up to you steam-punk, romantic, victorian, boho, arty. It is beautifully lined with soft satin fabric and features two inside breast pockets. Lovely lapel detail and 3 embossed decorative buttons on each side. The coat was worn open so does not button up - shows your shirt underneath, ruffled or plain - even a t-shirt. The sleeve ends feature a row of 3 buttons too - 2 missing on the left side, unfortunately, but could easily be replaced.The back features a long center slit for ease of wear, with a button on either side - lovely fitted seam detail above the slit. Padded shoulders but not bulky or obvious. The inside lining of the sleeves is striped white silk or satin (see photo detail)no holes or tears - i have had it dry-cleaned so it is ready to wear. A great item of antique clothing - collector, museum piece - higly wearable too for those who like to surprise.
