It's all about the color in this Jacket Bodice

From the seller:

This is a fabulous cut velvet jacket from the 1890's. The color is a rich cobalt blue, with leg-o-mutton sleeves, a small shawl collar, and peplum hip. It closes with crochet covered ball buttons, and they are all there except the very top one. This is hard to notice because there is a hook and eye closure at the top neckline, too. There is a hook and eye waistband and underbodice inside. The condition of this jacket is wonderful! The only tiny flaw is that one button is pulled about a quarter of an inch from the fabric. Could be fixed with a stitch or two. (see last photo). This jacket would be a great addition to anyones collection, because you don't find pre-1900 garments in this condition too often. Comes from a smoke free home.

Measurements: Bust: 37" Waist: 27: Bottom edge: 45" Across Shoulder: 13.5" Sleeve Length: 25.5" Length: 23"

From Me:

I'm just drooling over the color. Don't mind me.
