An EvaDress 'Advents-Kalendar' of RED! Day 13

Alexandra Reynolds 1880's coat EvaDress Patterns evening frock jacket Pattern Tour Victorian Vintage Patterns wrap

In a sort of Advents-Kalendar way, I will post 'red' for each day of December through Christmas and link the image as closely as possible to EvaDress Patterns (in pattern tour form)!
Here is the thirteenth, 1880's Dress with jet beaded polonaise, photo per:

Sew the look using our 1885 Grenadine Mantle pattern:
1885 Grenadine Mantle
Originally by Haper's Bazaar, this wrap was made in Grenadine with velvet 'figures' or motifs in its weave. Today, a gauze or very fine jacquard may be used instead. I likened this pattern to the extant example for the Grenadine mantle sleeve embellishment of jet beads on tulle. The appearance of the entire polonaise on the extant red dress appears beaded in jet.
