Enjoy this dress from the Costume Museum of Canada.
The shirt part has an opening concealed in the folds
The bottom of the shirt is tucks…
…and the top is gathered
There is a separate lining inside that is buttoned shut.
Side view of big sleeves. I love the cuffs!
See how pretty they are. I love all the beading on the edges. How many hours of work is that!
Nice back extension on the lapel. You can also see that the collar fastens in the back.
