1868 Day Dress

1868 Day Dress, Front

I made this 1868 Day Dress, the inspiration for the overskirt came from a La Mode Illustree, it’s worn with a midvictorian Winter bonnet, elliptical crinoline and corset.

The idea for the pattern of the trim came from an extant garment in V&A museum.

Invisible to the eye are the brown velvet piping I made and placed around the neckline, armscyes and wrists.

All handmade by me.
