Day dress

Closeup on day dress, c. 1904-08. If you don't see the pure awesomeness of this, allow me to explain: Every trim here is hand made. Someone, about a century ago, sat down, plotted this, bought the materials and built it, forming minute stitches one by one. The lace was knotted thread by thread. The embroidery stitch by stitch. each pintuck, folded and stitched down by hand. Yards and yards of work. This humbles me.

Evening dress, 1855-1860, British, silk and linen. From the shoulder to hem 136.5 cm. Lovely and elegant mantle-style bodice with sculpting and trim repeated on the flounces. Excellent Victorian example of the pure, sweet, princess look. From the Leeds Museums and Galleries Collections.
