This selection is an interesting contrast to the embroidered 1880s smoking jacket of last week, especially when you consider the floral patterns on the "inside out" view as embroidery.

I didn't think about the connections between these two objects until after I posted the Project Alabama dress, but you're right. The lounge jacket and this contemporary dress were born from a shared goal of supporting/invigorating the handmade object. Though it's interesting to see how different these tow objects are--the Project Alabama dress looks very handmade, while the lounge jacket looks like a machine production. The embroidery is so skillfull that it is hard to believe it was done by hand.
