February 09, 2013 Photographs of all the pieces of the Carmelite habit worn in the time of St. Therese of Lisieux February 09, 2013/ Maureen O'Riordan The habit of St. Therese. Photo by Juan Marrero. All rights reserved. See photographs of the various pieces of the Carmelite habit worn in the time of St. Therese, "a complex assemblage of various pieces under the robe and the scapular." Therese had to put on at least twelve garments before she was fully dressed for choir, and the whole outfit was held together with pins, not with buttons. Thanks to the Archives of the Carmel of Lisieux for giving us this glimpse into a dimension of Therese's everyday life.
