Centennial ball gown, circa 1876. Many party guests wore Colonial attire. Old silk in storage was remodeled into new clothes.This is a mix: half 18th century and half Victorian. Bodice, reconstructed with Victorian boning petersham, retains original sleeves. Petticoat was remade into bustle shape. Pale peach taffeta hand-embroidered with ivory silk floss medallions. Some of them were cut out of extra fabric and appliquéd as borders around the neckline and sleeves. Via Vintage Textile.
