1890's walking suit of fine Pendelton wool

this is an 1890's walking suit, the pale green check and the perwinkle trim are a very fine Pendelton wool.  I made the skirt from fine wale cotton corduroy.  the trim on the front of the overskirt and at the back of the jacket waist were beaded pieces from a vintage garment.  I digitized scroll work similar to the beaded pieces to embroidery on the jacket.

all of the undergarments had embroidery created just for them too in white on white embroidered pieces.


Pattern or design used: vintage patterns too old to remember where I got them.
