Historical Fashion ~ Women's Late Victorian

1890 ~ 1901.....Women's fashion became simpler and less extravagant; both bustles and crinoline fell out of use and dresses were not as tight as before. The mid 1890s introduced leg o'mutton sleeves, which grew in size each year. Skirts took on a trumpet shape, fitting more closely over the hip and flaring just above the knee.
