A caraco made from Linen: an interpretation of a Janet Arnold illustration, with a black wool petticoat in the 18th C style, worn over a bum roll and stays
The hat is based on a Gainsborough portrai of the Duchess of Devonshire. It’s 28" across!
All the materials came out of my stash, except the caraco lining, which was a gift.
The caraco is all linen, lined with linen, with cotton lace. The petticoat is a wool Venetian cloth (satn), and the hat is a polyester taffeta, adorned with ostrich feathers and satin and taffeta ribbon, and artificial roses in black and cream.
