Berrington Hall Mantua + Replica

29 Pins
 3y
The silk looks horribly tacky in this photo from the glare of the lights but this is just to follow on from the image of the sleeve under the Robings so you can see how. once the Robings are down, they cover the seam nicely.
Sleeves were set differently in the Mantuas. It wasn't that the technique wasn't there as men's tailoring had set in sleeves but the method of quickly putting a mantua together led to a simpler sleeve.
Taken whilst being worked on in our workshop, this is a photo of the front before we'd added the sash.
