The last item from the last Costume Museum of Canada display in May that I will be showing is a turn of the century blue suit.
The detail on it is wonderful!
The chevron pattern is repeated on the back.
there is green velvet trim on the collar…
The buttons are blue velvet.
I wouldn’t put blue and green velvet together on one suit so I wonder if the buttons had been replaced at some point or there was some sort of weird fading on the collar and sleeve. Still a nice suit. For the display, it was paired up with a little bag. And a broach was used to hide moth holes.
