Ladies Evening Toilette




This lovely outfit is simple called an evening toilette. The separate bodice is made out of a rose silk with a golden shimmer to it. I have no idea how the fabric is made. The bodice has several rows of shirring,each decorated with a row of jet beads. The skirt is a black brocade with of course the usual train. A belt of see thru ribbon drapes down one side with a little ribbon rosette decoration at the waist. All closes at the back with snaps. {I prefer snaps over hook and eyes, just my thing.}
  I think she plans on spending some time out in the evenings, which is why she has been asking for and getting evening gowns.
