Historical Fashion ~ Women's Victorian

1870 ~ 1889....is characterized by a gradual return to a narrow silhouette after the full-skirted fashions of the 1850s and 1860s. Fashionable waists were low and tiny below a full, low bust supported by a corset and was characterized by the return of the bustle.

Woman's Dress, England, c.1885, LACMA. I often see the top image detail (gorgeous btw) variously mislabeled as from the 18thCentury, and often as "Detail robe à la française - 1725", which, clearly it is not! So if you have this image in your 18thC costume collection please re-label and pin to your 19thC costume board! :) Clicking on the image will take you to the LACMA page: collections.lacma...
