Victorian Women’s Coats, Jackets, Suits | Edwardian, 1910s, WW1

To stay warm in bitter cold Victorian winters women’s would wear a variety of capes, cloaks, coats, and jackets from the early 1840s to the late Edwardian era and ww1. Long coats covered the entire dress but were usually capes with or without big bell sleeves. Small fur trimmed caplets were worn during sportier activities like ice skating. Coats and jackets similar to what we see today emerged in the late Victorian era. They were hip length with lapels or a big collar just like the men’s version. During ww1 the two piece suit with skirt and jacket took inspiration from military uniforms and became regular street clothing for active, forward thinking women.  The driving coat was also common at the turn of the century and around the sailing of the Titanic.

Shop all of these styles and more inspired by the Romantic Victorian and Edwardian aesthetic or the more historically accurate reproduction period coats and sewing patterns.
