    Court Dress. 1860's. Dress worn to court was the most elaborate and expensive ensemble in a lady’s wardrobe. In addition to a skirt worn over a very large crinoline, a train extending for several metres was an essential feature of court dress. Young debutantes would spend hours practising how to curtsey and walk backward in such an elaborate ensemble before their first presentation at court. Victoria and Albert Museum.

    Dress Date: ca. 1865 Culture: French.
