Victorian era lace gown.
Victorian Tambour Lace Gibson Girl Ball / Wedding Gown; early 1900s. This pigeon-breasted, off-the-shoulder dress drapes gracefully along the body and flares to an elegant train. The dress is made almost entirely of ecru net, intricately embroidered with floral and leaf motifs in the tambour style and enhanced with appliqued lace and cut-work. I was born in the wrong era...love these vintage gowns!

Wedding dress, 1865. Silk-satin, trimmed with Honiton appliqué lace, machine net and bobbin lace, hand-sewn. The bride's dress was a focal point just as it is today. By 1800 it had become usual for her to wear white or cream. This was a popular colour as it implied purity, cleanliness and social refinement. The wide skirt of dress would have been supported underneath by a cage crinoline.
