Memphis...lovely Netting Sacque and Bonnet

This Sacque is made from English Netting (the read deal) and is lined with blue silk.

It has a matching Bonnet.

The Bonnet is also lined with silk and is trimmed with pretty lace.

There are tucks on the back of the Sacque...on the netting only.
The tucks give the back more wiggle room.

To create additional room in the lining, there is an inverted pleat.

I love the way the lace edging is stitched on either side of the lace insertion on the sleeve edge.  It's also  stitched  along the front edge.

Thank you Virginia for sharing your wonderful clothes with me!
