Thanks to sewaddicted who posted the link about the sleeve supports http://sewaddicted.livejournal.com/538397.html?thread=1228829#t1228829 and  http://www.metmuseum.org/Collections/search-the-collections/80003270
I have to make one straightaway.


I used sensibility.com Romantic era dress pattern to do a sleeve, then I put a bias tape in the middle. I put garden irrigation tube through the tape. However, It does not look quite the same as the picture, but not too bad as a first try.
I don't think the sleeveI made is big enough. I think it is a different type of sleeve. The one I made is puffy sleeve, I think it should be beret sleeve? The one made with a big circle.

It looks right to me but just not quite big enough ..... it is 1830s :D

Awesome 1830s. Will make it big big! :)

I have some in my collection - should get them out to measure...just so tired right now :(

My measurement is 27 inches, ie where the boning is.
I was exhausted after the festival.
