I have just completed a matinee jacket from 1915 with similar detailing to that dressing sacque (square neckline and the sleeve detail) however I must admit that the front closure on your illustration is certainly that one step beyond - yum! I love the additional details and embellishments in these old patterns - thnk you so much for sharing!

You're welcome. I've been to your blog once or twice and I'm in awe over the project you've undertaken.
