This taupe and burnished gold brocade jacket was just calling to be upcycled into a steampunk inspired piece with Victorian and antique charm to it.
The back detailing of the vintage bicycle ad with a gentleman atop a penny farthing was a perfect find and printed beautifully onto fabric. Crochet lace doilies embellish the back and sleeves of the jacket and gimp trim adds a finishing touch to frame the back panel and the sleeve ends.
Wine toned lace and braid trim pick up the colours in the bicycle ad image and satin fabric rosettes with tassels complete the feminine touches to this piece. The closure to this jacket is effected with three buttons that have been covered in the same wine lace that was used at the sleeve hemlines.
This jacket is a size 10/12 and should be dry cleaned or spot cleaned only, please
