Lace Tablecloth: Early 20th Century
Size: Small - Medium (Bust 36", Waist 29")
Price: $775 & shipping
Care:  Expert dry clean or wet clean only

This fitted and cropped wool crepe jacket says "classic with a flirty twist." The lace peplum, under collar, and pocket trim are cut from grandma's special lace tablecloth that served its last dinner years ago. The details make the jacket a classic, and, in their asymmetry, also contemporary.

This jacket shows off a trim waist both through its cut and the gray satin piping that highlights it. Large antique buttons slip into bound buttonholes, seeming anachronisms in such a hip piece. Fully lined in gray rayon taffeta.

The two personalities of Lace Redux make it comfy in either tight jeans or a skirt (short pencil or long, flowing and flared). A versatile and memorable jacket.
