    Hi - I believe both the bolero jacket and vest are older, however, any help would be appreciated on determining age and any other pertinent info.
    The bolero is a coarser linen with soutache embroidery. There are two newer eye/hooks.
    The vest is linen with silk coiled ties.
    Thanks!
    Brooke

    Beautiful jacket - not sure myself about the dating. Your vest though is a bodice - part of a dirndl dress. Does it have any kind of labels? They might be helpful.

    Brooke,

    The linen jacket is great. Does it have any interior construction, lining, etc?

    I was wondering about that. No label unfortunately :(

    Thanks Barbara. There isn't any lining - here's a few picture of the interior construction.

    Thanks, Brooke. These traditional styles are hard to date, and I am no specialist in them. So I can't really say when it's from except that it doesn't look like the current styles I see advertised everywhere once Oktoberfest comes around.
