The Striped Victorian bolero jacket is inspired by an original 1880s fashion plate and features bolero styling at the front with a high neck, mandarin collar and single hook and eye fastening. At the back the panelling sweeps down and flares out in a peplum which sits elegantly over the hips. The sleeves feature pleating at the shoulder and tapers down to the wrist.

It is fully lined with a beautiful black paisley viscose.Perfect for Steampunk, neo-victorian or Goth, you'll be sure to look resplendent at your next event or special occasion.

MADE TO MEASUREMENTSNot everyone fits standard sizing so I make everything to the measurements you provide. This means lengths are just so and widths are just right. For some items like skirts I will only need a few basic measurements, but complicated items like jackets will require you to fill out a measurement chart. Once you have placed your order, if necessary, I will send my measurement chart and instructions PDF in a message. Please see my shop policies for more FAQs about my service.



Choose whether you want lace or ribbon trimming from the drop down menu. Once your order is placed I will be in touch to send you my measurement chart and instructions.As a custom piece this item is professionally handmade at my Lincolnshire, UK studio. Please see the delivery section for details of my current schedule, but it is usually around 8 weeks plus shipping time.

Listing is for the jacket only. It is shown with our bustle skirts and underskirts which are available to order separately in the shop. If you are ordering the jacket with a skirt/bustle the lace trimmings will match and we recommend ordering both items together to ensure this.


Listing is for the JACKET ONLY! Please note this cotton is slightly different to the striped cotton we use for the Bathing suits and Edwardian Striped Petticoat.
