Edwardian Embroidered Linen Wedding Suit Titanic
Gorgeous Edwardian embroidered linen wedding suit from the Titanic era. It's perfect for the bride or mother-of-the-bride, or for a very special occasion. The suit is off white linen with hand embroidered floral sprays covering much of the ensemble. The jacket has deep cuffs and a beautiful collar with big scallops that are hand embroidered with smaller scallops. The details are really amazing, and any vintage clothing collector knows how hard it is to find pieces like this. The skirt has a raised waist and a very slight train or dip in the back. It's a flattering shape for many figures. A metal zipper was added in the back at some point to make it easier to wear. The four top buttons on the jacket are a slightly darker color, but other than that, the suit is in nearly perfect condition and very wearable. The jacket is a size 8-10, and measures approx. 16" across the shoulders, 22" sleeve length, up to 40" bust, 30" waist, and 30" overall length. The skirt measures approx. 27" waist, up to 42" hips, 42" length in the back, and 39" length in front.
