I'll be putting a selection of photos here, but I put them all up on Flikr - I'm still new to that photo venue, so I hope the link works. Click here to see all the photos.
|A lovely printed dress with a ruffle along the bust, high neckline, and long sleeves with a drawstring ruffle sleeve.|
The fabric appeared to be a light cotton.
|Gorgeous border print!|
|I took a peek underneath the bodice and look what I found! |
It looks like the bodice is gathered as a completely separate piece. I wonder if a different bodice cut is underneath for warmer weather.
|A lovely pink and cream striped ballgown.|
It might be a silk satin?
Yes, that's The White House burning in the background.
|Look at the lace and that woven design!|
|the back train|
|This gown, I believe, is the early 1800s with the train and simple white fabric.|
The only detail is on the sleeves.
|Gorgeous shawl! I was drooling over this one. The color is just incredible!|
|Love the sleeve detail.|
|Simple drawstring back|
|I love this one of Elizabeth Bonaparte|
