Turn of the Century Dress and Dolman!









From the seller:

ANTIQUE/VINTAGE 1890'S DRESS AND CAPE. AS YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES IT NEEDS RESTORED. WELL WORTH THE TIME.


From Me:

1899 Fashion Plate

I wanted to include this fashion plate because the sleeves are similar - it has a bit of the flare of the extant gown at the cuff but, really, the almost extinct puff at the armscye is still there.

What I love about this is that it's probably for a slightly older lady who wanted the fashions of ten years ago but to still look fashionable in the very late 1890's as well. The dolman went out of style in the late 1880's but this one is cut to the cape like fashion of the turn of the century. 

Overall, it's a pretty fun outfit.
