Light brown tweed wool jacket with matching skirt. S-curve shape with military-inspired decoration including dark brown covered buttons and woven tape trim. Back cut in v-shape. Some modern alterations added (dark brown taffeta trim over the edges and fastenings). Modern alterations to hem of skirt and addition of dark brown taffeta trim not original to the garment. taffeta rosette trim at center front probably also added more recently. c.1900-1910. Would have been worn with a shirtwaist blouse.
