Yellow silk dress with cream satin trim, c. 1810. This was almost certainly made from an earlier dress of the 18th C. The front panel of the skirt is a slightly stronger shade than the rest, as is the center back bodice and the puff sleeves. There are fold marks in the skirt front where it has been unpicked.

Embroidered wool day dress with metal and wood beadwork (back), American, ca. 1885. This dress belonged to Amelia Beard Hollenback (1844-1918), wife of financier and philanthropist John Welles Hollenback. The unusual color and intriguing use of solid and striped wool fabric has a folkloric aesthetic, which may have been inspired by Amelia's travels through the Southwest. The inventive asymmetrical draping shows a high level of sophistication and design sensibility for a day dress.
