Two of our commissions for 2015 included 2 sets of 1890s era skirt and shirtwaist combinations. These four garments went to two separate museums.
The first 1890s skirt and shirtwaist are made of 100% lightweight cotton. Lightweight fabric was requested due to high heat and humidity in the region where this historical ensemble will be used. The client specifically requested a solid grey skirt with lighter tone shirtwaist.
The second skirt and shirtwaist is made of both cotton and wool. The shirtwaist is made from 100% cotton shirting reprinted from a late 19th century pattern. And the skirt is a medium weight crimson wool. The client specifically requested a skirt in a deep red hue.
