    A Victorian American bride chose this wedding dress made of ivory watered silk. Note the low neck and short sleeves typical of an evening dress and consistent with that style of dress is a long veil. Worn in 1844.

    At first the tournure was built into the petticoat or hoopskirt but after 1871 they were sold separately, so you could choose your own favourite. At first we see the width is mainly on the lower part of the skirt, while later on it’s more architectural and higher up at the back.

    Princess Charlotte of Great Britain's wedding dress, or at least parts of it--it's been altered over time. In the Royal Collection. Still a lovely thing.

    I honestly wish we could still dress like this, perhaps minus the corsets but I love the beauty and elegance of the Victorian era.
