Pattern: Pet en l'air (Robe a la Francaise) from J.P Ryan.
Fabric: 100% cotton, pink & white stripe, with a moire weave. 100% linen for bodice lining. 100% silk taffeta for sleeve linings.
Measurements: *I cut the pattern size 14-16, but in my opinion this pattern runs small and fell several inches below the pattern's stated size of a 40-42" chest.
Hem: 39" at front
Bicep: 13.5" max
Back Width: 14" (adjustable)
The method used to set in the sleeves is not modern, but an 18th century method by which the top portion of the sleeve is sandwiched between the lining and dress and then edge stitched in place through all layers. This method allows the top shoulder of the sleeves to fit smooth without the "fold" of an inner seam moving back and forth.
