Agnes Richter- asylum embroidery jacket - the linen jacket above was made by Agnes Richter, a seamstress and patient in an Austrian asylum during the late 1800′s. She constructed the jacket from cloth typically used in the institution and embroidered her story onto the jacket.
Although the vast majority of the body was covered it was permissible for dresses to have plunging necklines. A necklace was often worn which drew even more attention to a woman's breasts. The necks and cuffs of gowns were decorated with silk or linen ruffs. The hair was often worn loose as a symbol of purity.
