Reproduction

 

Image 1: Reproduction Back Image 2: Reproduction Front

The reproduction of this garment is true to the original style; at the same time it has been made to fit a modern body without a corset. The garment was draped on a size 10 dress form, used less padding in the chest, and added a gusset to the two-part sleeve. Otherwise the reproduction is similar to the original. All the bead work on the reproduction (as with the original) was done by hand.

The images above show details of the reproduction in the back (Image #3) and sleeve from the front (Image #4).  Image #4 also shows the slight bow that hides the front closure and echoes the one at center back.
