Victoria Jacket

$235.00

This is perhaps the most flattering, comfortable jacket ever invented.

The Victoria Jacket magically creates a waspy waist even if yours is nonexistent.  It gives you hips if you need them, and blends them out if you think yours is too generous. The open neckline beautifully frames your face and makes room if you have a larger chest; if you don’t, it’s the perfect way to show off a beautiful shirt, or a lace or silk jabot.

The back is cut so you won’t feel any binding when you reach forward, even if this always happens to you in other jackets!  You won’t believe how comfy this is until you try one.

You can adjust the sleeve length if you’re very petite or tall, or have short or long arms, or just prefer three-quarter length sleeves (or if it’s turning into a warm day).  There are corset-style lacings in the back, so you can fine-tune the fit, or wear it with or without a corset underneath.  The collar can be worn turned up for extra drama, or down for subtlety.  There’s even a secret pocket on the inside so you can stash your keys and cards.

You can take the Victoria to a job interview or to the office as a suit jacket that will get you noticed; just choose the right fabric and wear a collared shirt underneath.  Or it can become the finishing touch to an all-out Steampunk outfit, perhaps with buttoned trousers or a Victorian-style Cascade Skirt.

Sizing

In order for us to determine the correct size for you, we’ll need some measurements from you.  Victoria jackets look best when they’re quite fitted; we make them with about 2-3 inches of wearing ease over body measurement at chest level, or even less if the fabric has some give.  If you prefer a looser or tighter fit than this, please make a note of it during the ordering process, and Kitty will let you know if it’s feasible.
