What brand is this?

I'm not into lolita fashion generally, but I couldn't help but love a jacket I found on eBay. Being eBay, the image was taken from somewhere else but I'm not sure where. I know I've seen similar coats from Baby, but my knowledge is... pretty limited.

Thank you for any and all help!

Whoops. Didn't see that you were looking for the brand it was taken from. I believe that it is a Victorian Maiden style coat, but that is not one of their photos. I think that the photo was actually taken by the maker themselves of their work. Though, I have heard stories about this sellers quality and it does NOT measure up to their photography. They do shody work.

Main page:

Click on "shopping" to view their selection:

It's a summer coat and the only one up right now, so it's not exactly the same, but you'll see what I mean about the cut:

However, yes, that is quite a common cut for lolita coats. But usually Baby uses more fur, or puffier? fur on the collar and Angelic Pretty has more bells and whistles. In the end, it's pretty generic.

It's Mary Magdalene- here is the original coat, courtesy of the Wayback Machine. And here is their normal website.

The Wayback Machine? That's a new one for me X3 But thank you so much!

As it seems everything on the site is sold out, looks like I'll be going to my tailor after all *sigh*

http://www.archive.org/ Pretty much one of the most useful websites on the internet. I use it to find old stock images all the time!
