While this coat may not be exactly historically accurate… it still would make for a great costume. You could be a soldier in the American Revolution, Civil War commander, a Pirate on the high seas ( Captain Jack Sparrow!), Napoleon himself, a Gothic Vampire, a United Empire Loyalist or a Steampunk Time Traveller. Or you could just wear it for the sake of fashion!

This coat is available in three different color combinations as well as a wide array of sizes up to and including 5X.

Western Shirt Rockabilly Cowpunk Cowboy Costume Asymmetrical Satin Acetate Pearl Snap Buttons Embroidered One of a Kind Squire of California

Can you see what is wrong with this shirt?! Lol. The left and right yoke sections are at different angles!
If you are looking for a conversation starter to wear to a party then this is the shirt for you!

Squire of California
XL
100% Acetate

There are some small holes as shown in the photographs so please look at them carefully. One of the buttons is cracked as well but snap function works fine. I apologize for the wrinkles – they should smooth out fine if ironed carefully. I found the following on Google:

“How do you iron acetate?
Set the temperature to low or medium heat, make sure the fabric is slightly damp and iron from the top down. Set the temperature to low heat and iron inside out. Avoid stretching out your garment by ironing in smaller portions. Turn the fabric inside out, make sure that the fabric is damp and avoid steam.”

Vintage Victorian / Edwardian Style Lace Wedding Dress made in the 1970s to 1980s.
Waist measures about 26 inches.
Bust is 34 inches.
Shoulder is 12.5 inches across.
The length is approximately:
55 inches from shoulder to front bottom hem
76 inches from shoulder to back bottom hem.

The tag has been cut out so I don’t know the exact material. I believe it is a union label.
My best guess is that it is a Polyester nylon.
There are 3 layers to the skirt part – a straight slip, a lining and the lace overlay.
The front of the dress skirt has an additional layer of lining.
The top has a single layer of lining and then the lace overlay on top. The sleeves are unlined.
There are 2 little yellow stains on the front. I have not attempted to remove them nor have I cleaned the dress.
There is some staining/soiling at the bottom hem from being worn.
The belt is removable. It closes with Velcro. There is some stitching near the closure at the back. I don’t know what that was for.
