Historical Fashion ~ Women's Civil War
1845 ~ 1869..... is characterized by an increase in the width of women's skirts supported by crinolines or hoops. Wider bell-shaped or pagoda sleeves were worn over false undersleeves or engageantes of cotton or linen, trimmed in lace. Evening gowns were very low-necked, falling off the shoulders, and had short sleeves. The introduction of the steel cage crinoline in 1856 provided a means for expanding the skirt still further, and flounces gradually disappeared in favor of a skirt lying more smoothly over the petticoat and hoops. Pantalettes were essential under this new fashion for modesty's sake.

1860 white Ball gown
Costume designed by Piero Tosi for Claudia Cardinale in The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) (1963) Fripperies and Fobs. I add it even if it is not a original Victorian dress, although the novel and the film are set in that time (1860' ca), but simply because it is one of the movies that I love.
