Wanted...

My favorite find of the season from Reddoll on Etsy. A military-style, double-breasted wool coat with a high collar, circle metal buttons, and black satin lining throughout the coat. The skirt is a full cut circle. Custom-made to fit you!

Very nice adaptation of an 18th century idea of a military/riding front on the ladies bodice.
I vaguely remember one of those cute " provocative" costumes (provocative for 18th century)in Forman's Amadeus - powdered wig adorned with bows and tiny officer' hat, a double-breasted waistcoat and fluffy jabot, contrasted by exaggerated ruffled petticoat(s).

I couldn't find the exact picture, but this is similar.

Lynn, you don't have to struggle with pounds! The whole idea of such coat is contrast between feminine form and masculine military style...

gorgeous- the combination of the tailored military top and flirty flared and contrast ruffle is unexpected and perfect...

I had this image filed to post this week. I can't believe this designer is only on Etsy. That coat is to die for.
