Suiting Your Pleasure

1860's Promenade Suit (Private Commission)- This ensemble was recreated for a private client and is inspired by an original piece from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England. The basque waist style jacket and skirt are constructed of a Peacock blue wool chalis fabric, embellished with quad cable and diamond design in cotton soutache braiding, complimented by bands of black cotton velveteen trim. Belt buckle at waist treatment is original to the period. Spoon style bonnet is of draped black silk shantung and velvet materials, trimmed out a small spray knot of vintage jet beading. Silk floral and vintage lace have been used on the inside of the bonnet brim.
