|My sacque jacket from the back, with the beautiful hanging pleats|

The jacket was very comfortable to wear and I'm so glad it was cotton because it was *hot* in the museum. My shift, stays, and jacket were all soaked at the end of each day, but quick drying (yay, linen and linen linings!).
|The jacket hangs open in the front, with a false waistcoat stitched in at the side-back seams. The front drape is shaped with pleats at the side and the front edges.|
|I wore my Penny River hand-embroidered stockings (Etsy), red Dunmore shoes, and green Charlotte buckles by Sign of the Grey Horse (Etsy)|
|The original jacket at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow - it was such a treat to see this!|
|And now we know why it's called a "pet en l'air" :-P|
