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.

White off-the-shoulder evening gown - circa 1860s civil war era fashion
1860s Angelica's ball gown from the movie "Il Gattopardo" (1963). Costume Designer: Piero Tosi - Sartoria Tirelli
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.
