1890's Brown Day Outfit

From the seller:

UP for auction is an antique ladies long burgandy raw silk skirt with little black squiqqly lines and matching jacket. The jacket has little metal buttons which are dainty and feminine. All buttons are present and original. The cut of the jacket is superb with full sleeves ending in a point over the wrist and a tailored bust and waist with boning. The sleeves are large and gathered at the shoulder.The skirt is missing its original button and looks to have been taken in some. I believe this would be an easy fix to make it wearable. It's definitely wearable and could be let out if needed. There are a couple of small wear places in the pattern on the fabric on the jacket but no holes. There is some staining inside the lining of the skirt and some wear around the waist. I also took a picture of the lining of the skirt so you can see what fabulous condition its in. There is no label inside. This is straight out of Sweeney Todd--something Helena Bonham Carter might have worn. Perfect for a personal or museum collection and even great for Cosplay--very Steampunk!
skirt waist: lying flat = 13" (can be let out another inch or two)
skirt length: 38"
skrit width: full circle and fully lined.
jacket bust: lying flat from pit to pit: 17"
jacket waist: lying flat: 13.5" at smallest point
jacket length: 21"
jacket sleeve: from top of shoulder seam to bottom of cuff: 29"

From Me:
