This garment currently may be seen in the Museum of Costume in London in the United Kingdom. The dress was created in 1905 by BLANCAVAERT, Court Dressmaker and Ladies’ Taylor, 38 and 39 South Molton Street. W.
The original dress was made from blue and white striped cotton voile. The garments unique feature is the raised waistline in back created by the sloped belt. In addition the ivory satin under bodice would have been heavily boned, with the striped voile simply draped over the under-structure.
The pattern for this dress is taken from the Janet Arnold Patterns of Fashion volume 2, English women’s dresses and their construction.
