LOVE....what a great Christmas party dress!!!

Love these dresses Lauren posted for Style Guide: New Year's Eve. But these dresses can be worn all year. 3 is my favourite :)

Dress, ca. 1837. American. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Rogers Fund, 1937 (37.192)

Dress 1837, American made of silk ~~~~~ Over a few years after 1836 the Romantic sleeve fullness inevitably worked its way down the sleeve giving a much tighter top arm and more fullness at the elbow. Next the elbow fullness dropped to the wrist and excess material was gathered into a rouleau or band creating a new sleeve shape.

Morning dress Date: ca. 1837 Culture: British Medium: cotton Dimensions: Length at CB: 49 in. (124.5 cm) Credit Line: Purchase, Irene Lewisohn Bequest, 1975 Accession Number: 1975.128.8

c. 1837 dress, British. Cotton. The Met, 1983.241.1

Dress Date: 1902–3 Culture: French Medium: silk Dimensions: [no dimensions available] Credit Line: Gift of Mrs. M. Julia Mullaney, 1942 Accession Number: C.I.42.161.2a, b

Dress Date 1902–4 - someone with far more time and talent could make a wonderful steampunk-esque outfit based on this dress design. Tone down the sleeves, change the black/silver halter thing for a sort of leather utility halter, open the back up for a peek of skin. It would be fabulous.
