1906 Costume de Quartier-Maître

La Semaine de Suzette
1906 Costume de Quartier-Maître

I chose to do this outfit in the traditional dark blue with white color scheme. The fabric used for this outfit came from a vintage skirt of fine wool, while the jacket collar is made from a lovely vintage pique. The anchors are embroidered in red silk floss. Vintage mother-of-pearl buttons were used for the jacket closure. I had a wonderful tiny antique anchor pin just waiting for an outfit such as this.

One suggestion the pattern gave was to embroider the name of a ship on the beret. I chose to work the ship name L’ETOILE (The Star) in silk floss. A red silk cocarde finishes off the beret.
