Mid Victorian Reproduction Beige and Black Day Dress was made for a Victorian fancy dress ball with a ruff
and ears to be a Victorian version of a Renaissance cat.
Idea was to add trim to the dress to wear to Dickens Fair at a later date.
Black and beige printed cotton with burgandy cotton lining and silk lining in the sleeve facings.
Skirt is cartridge pleated, has hook and eyes in the front and has hidden pockets.
Bodice hooks and eyes up front.
Pattern was based on Simplicity 3727 for the bodice.
