This item is one of many from a very early 20th Century French ladies Garde Robe.

Made of what seems to be thin dense black cotton. The coat has a classic early 20th-century cut, with pleated front and nipped in waist and slight flare at the hem. Hook and eye closure with ornamental fabric buttons. Across the throat is a built lace cover with wire stiffeners. Hem, shawl collar and cuff are made of soft black silk. Internally the construction is complex with a waistband and an additional partial cotton lining for the chest.


The skirt is plain with some ornamental black buttons. Closure is studs and poppers with a hook and eye clip at the waist.

There is some damage to the lace throat latch and wear to the armpits. The metal hook/eye arrangements are corroded with age. The hook for the internal waistband has snapped off.


Measurements:

Note the cut is typical late victorian/ early 20th with tight-fitting body and high waist with the skirt cut narrow at the top and wide at the bottom.
