A Victorian suit dress for a character in a Sherlock Holmes high school play. I used the Simplicity 4156 pattern. the pattern was originally a 1895 dress with the leg o’ mutton sleeves, but I changed the sleeves to give it an earlier feel of about 1890.The blue fabric is a drapery fabric and I recycled the cream fabric from a man’s button down shirt. The front closes with hooks and eyes and snaps at the collar. It also has about 10 pieces of boning throughout the top, sewn inside the lining.

Mauve silk and wool afternoon suit (with velvet jacket), by Jeanne Paquin, French, 1906-08. This dress highlights Paquin's technique to create interesting light and textural effects. Four kinds of decorative materials- box-pleated ruching, silk-wound beads, point d'esprit and patterned net lace - each with its own reflective textural quality, are combined on the bodice. The silk-wound beads, attached only at one end for maximum protrusion, add a contrasting shape and a glittering effect.
