  • Bethany Meyer

    Evening dress ca. 1860’s. Gorgeous fabric and fantastically expensive lace. The detail on the bertha is very pretty as well. The wide box pleats of the dress are more typical of the mid 1860s, although the deep bodice point and berthe are from the earlier part of the decade.

    Evening dress (ca. 1860’s). Pale pink moire satin. The skirt has been set into the deeply 'V' shaped bodice in large pleats. This allows the skirt to fan out into a fuller circumference. lace is draped into swags and secured with large bows around the lower half of the skirt. The neckline is shallow and broad to form a portrait-style neckline. The capped sleeves are almost hidden by the lace accent around the neckline. This gown has a 'brush train'. Very feminine.
