From Me:

Wow! The day bodice (the one with the long sleeves and not a lot of decoration) and the evening or dinner bodice are still with the skirt. The outfit is not Victorian but Edwardian (notice the sleeves and the pigeon front?)

...I feel sorry for those reading this on the RSS feed with all these pictures but they are very necessary to understanding the construction of each piece in this lovely outfit.
