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.
