Always Something at the Atelier

We examine a lot of original garments, studying them to determine the sorts of fabrics that were used as well as working out period construction techniques. This day dress is from circa 1879-1880 and was machine stitched and hand finished with only one soutache side detail.

I even did a burn test on some of the threads and determined that it was wool. 😎
