1835-1845 American Overcoat at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "This nicely tailored overcoat evokes a grand presence representative of its period. This would have been worn by a fashionable gentleman to protect his more delicate suit from the newfound repercussions of industrialization such as engine smoke."

Walking dress, Paris, ca. 1880-83. Silk velvet, silk satin, machine lace. Three pieces (bodice, skirt, bustle pouf). The complex draping of the overskirt creates the classic bustle silhouette which was hugely popular in the 1880s. This silhouette required an undergarment support provided by metal bustles or thick, voluminous pads filled with horsehair or cotton. This fullness made the waist look smaller. Mint Museum

Day dress, Britain, 1885. Printed cotton stitched onto cotton foundation skirt. Basqued bodice falls over cascade of drapery to create bustled silhouette. Dresses usually comprised separate pieces arranged onto foundation skirt. Here, pleated ruffles machine-sewn onto front panel of skirt to give impression of multi-layered garment. Swathe of fabric at top of skirt, “scarf drapery,” created simulated overskirt when pulled up & pleated into side seams. Victoria & Albert Museum
