1885 Yellow & Black Plaid Suit

Patterns: Truly Victorian 460 (heavily altered), with folding collar taken from Truly Victorian 428. Skirt is Truly Victorian 261, with the back panel flipped so that the curve it at the top waistband and the hem is straight.
Fabric: Silk/cotton blend, though I can't be certain. I'm certain it is mostly silk, with the second fiber being something natural. The burn tests were non-melting, grey ash with the scent of burning hair, which matches silk.
