Beautiful Old Style

Victorian Civil War Era Dress Butterick Pattern 5543 - I'd like this one, but with a different front.

This lovely dupioni ensemble is what a woman dreams of wearing. This elegant ensemble, late Victorian styling, brings so much pleasure! The lovely long jacket is trimmed in black lace and has front button closure. The jewel neckline is trimmed in lace. The 3/4 length sleeves are finished with a flounce trimmed in beautiful lace. The striking elastic waist skirt is trimmed in lace as well. What a delightful ensemble! Available in sizes XS to XXXXL.

nice colour and bustle skirt, not as keen on the jacket, needs more of a bodice
