Day Dress: ca. 1909, floral-patterned cotton tulle, trimmed with cord embroidery and silk satin roses. "This dress represents the transition period when women's dresses were being liberated from corsets. Its high waistline and simple silhouette, soft materials, and the loose-fitting lines free from the earlier artificial shape make us remember the dynamism in the period from the end of the 18th century to the early 19th century..."
1910-1913 navy blue day dress with thin white vertical pinstripe. High neck with white cotton lace and blue piping, long sleeves with lace trim, fitted bodice with soutache on front, side pleats, silk-covered buttons, and an A-line skirt. Via metroretrovintage/ebay.
