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. This was one of my favorite costumes I’ve sewn! 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. (The dress fits the actress much better than my mannequin)
Go far afield in wrap dresses, detailed jackets, and comfy separates for fall.
