This sale is for a most exquisite 1800's Victorian 3 piece bustle back walking suit in a heavy deep navy blue. This lovely, wearable set includes a high velvet collar corset jacket, a bustle back full length skirt and matching belt. The jacket is fully lined in an unusual gray denim fabric...quite lovely in a ladies suit! There are a total of seven sewn in corset stays. Faux velvet covered buttons with early hook & eye closure up the front. The skirt has hook and eye closure on left side with a hidden polished cotton pocket on same side. Large pleats in back bustle area to accommodate your wire cage bustle. There is a true dust ruffle along the hemline....made quite like the bristles of a brush! I have never quite seen one like this before. There is a matching belt with early hook & eye closure as well. The jacket and skirt have skirt supporters sewn in back to keep the ensemble together as one piece. In excellent, wearable condition. You will want to clean...there is a faint spot front skirt which is very faint...not quite as evident as my flash made it appear. There is velvet rubbing of front collar and decorative buttons. One small cluster of wear holes left bust...see magnified photo below. Hint of sleeve cuff wear at edges. This is a striking example of a Victorian walking suit.
