The folks at the Costume and Textiles Department at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)worked with Thomas John Bernard, a theatrical costume designer, to draft several men’s clothing patterns, including this man’s coat. Originally made in France of silk and cotton plain weave and silk satin stripes (c. 1790-95), we crave this in rich purple matte iridescent silk satin fabric….marvelous for a starry late night riverside tea party.
