Victorian Handmade Chantilly Lace Jacket

An amazing and exceedingly rare, Victorian hand made chantilly lace jacket. The shape is created by the lace making process, not cut out of a piece of cloth - in other words it was made deliberately to be this shape as it was meticulously hand made stitch by stitch.† It is cut fuller through the back as it would have been made to leave room for a bustle at the back.† It is not super fitted so may have been a maternity jacket, or morning coat - they were often loose and meant to be thrown on over fancy morning dresses where the outfit is fitted at bust but then flares down from there so women could lounge around without corsets and whatnot. It is truly remarkable and an extraordinary piece of fashion history and a testament to the level of textiles from this time period.† It is in museum quality condition. Item# S210
