Centennial ball gown, ca. Many party guests wore Colonial attire. Old silk in storage was remodeled into new clothes.This is a mix: half century half Victorian. Bodice, reconstructed with Victorian boning petersham, retains original sleeves.
Victorian bustle petticoat circa 1880 I'm thinking this is a replica of the bustled petticoat, chemise, and corset absolutely beautiful, hard to believe from the great condition – looks wonderful hanging in the bathroom for a statement talk piece.
