Designer's Note:

I am quite comfortable designing outfits to match existing elements of your wardrobe. A little added detailing can make an enormous difference in the look and feel. Click here to see a "before" picture showing the original jacket before I embellished it and re-set the sleeves for better fit.

Striped Victorian Gown with Medici Belt

This outfit was built around an existing zouave jacket supplied by the client. I embellished the jacket and paired it with a striped silk skirt with bias-cut, box pleated ruffle and matching shawl and reticule. Finishing off the look is a black velvet Medici belt with decorative frogs.
