Evening dress Date: 1860–62 The flared skirts of the period gradually increased in size throughout and were supported by a number of methods. The fashions during this time allowed the textiles to stand out because of the vast surface areas of the skirt and a relatively minimal amount of excess trim.

Civil War Era Evening Dress 1860-62 The female silhouette of the middle of the 19th century consisted of a fitted corseted bodice and wide full skirts. The conical skirts developed between the 1830s, when the high waist of the Empire silhouette was lowered and the skirts became more bell shaped, to the late 1860s, when the fullness of the skirts were pulled to the back and the bustle developed. The flared skirts of the period gradually increased in size throughout and were supported by a number of methods. Originally support came from multiple layers of petticoats which, due to weight and discomfort, were supplanted by underskirts comprised of graduated hoops made from materials such as baleen, cane and metal. The fashions during this time allowed the textiles to stand out because of the vast surface areas of the skirt and a relatively minimal amount of excess trim.

Taupe-colored silk dress (circa 1865-70). Although these are amazing creations of skill and artistry, I have to admit that the late Victorian dress styles are least appealing to me. SO over the top! I'd feel buried under all that fabric and frippery!
