|1890 wrapper back view|
The wrapper is made of a cotton print. Paisley was very popular at that time. It is fully lined in cotton sateen and fitted with darts at the front and shaped seams at the back. The lining is form fitting, allowing the back draping to be controlled.There is a short train and lace at the cuffs and yokes. the ribbon sash completes the look.
I've been creating historic clothing for Woodside and other Parks sites for more than 25 years now. That's a lot of clothes!
