"This model may be made up in either reps, merino or alpaca. If preferred, the under-dress may be striped and the Polonaise plain; but in this case the Polonaise should be sleeveless and the striped material used for under-bodice and sleeves. The revers and the bands on the sleeves should also be striped." [Click here for definition of polonaise.]
The Pattern [Click]
"Our pattern consists of one front, side-piece, back, sleeve and pocket. The perforated [?] line on the front shows the centre, a row of buttons being added to each side of it. The front is straight and the side-piece [side of the front] is draped to the same length as the side-piece. The long basque or tunic is plaited beneath the shorter basque of the back, the latter being left as full tab."
