Dress, American, 1890. Silk and linen. Metropolitan Museum of Art: "This dress is in keeping with the interest in historical revivals popular in the 19th century. The long puffed sleeves refer to both Elizabethan and early 19th-century styles. The one-piece construction indicates it was probably intended for formal reception at home."
