About Kial Linen-Rich Battenberg Jacket (For Women)
Closeouts. Pulling inspiration from traditional Battenberg lace, Kial's linen-rich Battenberg jacket is awash in traditional beauty. Florals intermingle with threaded eyelet foliage detail and oval-shaped buttons.

This little ditty is turning out to be a great summer go-to piece for adding a bit of "finish" to a summer ensemble, without adding warmth. I like to dress modestly, and sometimes a knit top is a bit too form-revealing for my comfort zone. This little jacket is just the ticket for covering up a bit without sacrificing femininity or comfort in hot humid weather. It's just the right white, so that it doesn't look either too stark or creamy-yellowish with fresh summer ensembles. It's not a heavily tailored item and is not lined, but the manufacturer went to the trouble to make sure that the pattern is mirrored on the two sides of the bodice, lending a more sophisticated note. The fabric is cool yet substantial and the satin-stitched scalloped edges and embroidery are tight and well-executed. All-in-all, I recommend this item. I got it in a size small, and it fits nicely. I usually wear a small, or extra-small in fitted items. The princess seams give it just enough shaping. Very happy with this purchase.

Follow the washing instructions to a "T" or major shrinkage and broken buttons will result. Do not tumble dry, not even on the lowest setting. Sized smallish to begin with so you need to be careful. Lovely to wear but very delicate.
