Tweed Walking Jacket

Tweed Walking Jacket
C.1915. Made of a fine middleweight tweed in a herringbone pattern. The inside of the coat is lined a floral pattern sateen. The jacket is in excellent condition, if not near mint condition with no rips, tears or stains and would be appropriate to wear during the autumn or spring. It might have had a matching skirt.
The coat is cut in typical teens era style, straight cut with a high belted waist. It has two functional pockets and has bands of material with buttons decorating it.
Measurements: Shoulders: 15 1/2" - 16", Bust: 47", Waist: 46", length: 32". I'm a US 16/UK 18 and can fit into this nicely but at 5'9", the sleeves are about 2" short on me.
