tarlatan, l 122.0cm More details

The boat neck was reserved for eveningwear. Day dresses were higher-necked and usually had long sleeves. The pointed bodice of this dress is fitted with whalebones, and a medium-size crinoline (hooped petticoat) was worn under the skirt. The striped fabric, which became fashionable around 1855, is incorporated into the design both horizontally and vertically.
