Rare Victorian swimwear. The fabric, a wool cotton blend most likely, is a deep rich red and blue (striped). This swimsuit closes up the front with five buttons and belt. Beautiful white flower applications on collar, cuffs and belt. Good condition for the age of the suit, with some big holes on bottom (perfect to display on a mannequin, smile), a little damage on collar and a light stain in front (see photos). It’s hard and rare to find a Victorian bathing suit in this colour!

1895 Aesthetic Dress Liberty Co. Culture: English Medium: pongee silk, lace, brass, silk twill, cotton This dress has many of the features associated with the dress reform trend of the late 19th century. The trend ran parallel with the Arts and Crafts Movement and advocated a radically new approach to dress in an effort to free women from corsetry.
"Smocked dress of the aesthetic movement, by Liberty & Co., London, 1893-1894. The dress is made of blue pongee silk trimmed with smocking and machine lace. Artistic, or aesthetic, dress was intended to do away with the artificial, constricting shapes of fashion such as tightly-laced corsets and hoops or bustles to hold out skirts. Decoration might be inspired by ancient Greek or Italian Renaissance clothing. Lightweight, washable fabrics, as well as winter velvets and wools, were popular."

Blouse and Skirt c. 1893- America - The Kyoto Costume Institute
c1893; US: Blouse of gray plain-weave cotton; pleated skirt of white linen; green cummerbund. As sports gained popularity among women, the blouse and skirt were established as essential items. This style was coined as the "Gibson girl style." Outfits for the modern lady, consisting of a plain skirt and starched blouse, were fresh in a time when over decorative dresses were the mainstream. The fashionable silhouette with an extremely thin waist of the time is emphasized by a corset.

This Civil War-era bridal gown circa 1863 was found by Steven Porterfield, owner of the Cat’s Meow vintage store in Midland, Texas, and guest appraiser on “Antiques Roadshow,” in early 2014 at a vintage sale on the East Coast. Therefore, one could deduce that a Union bride wore it.
