This lovely soft yellow gown was called a tea gown and was considered to be very sexy, in it's day. I believe that was because there were no corsets etc. under the gown and that was exciting to the men . The ladies got to enjoy a period of "no laces" to get comfortable, and relax, as well as serve tea, scones, and gossip.
This gown is made of a "watered" taffeta in a pale daffodil yellow, and a golden chiffon a shade darker. The lace trim had a center design of the same yellow as the gown. As with most Gibson style gowns, the neck is high and has a bow at the back.
I think this yellow is perfect for her shade of red hair.
Now, for the tea and gossip!
