There is nothing fancier then lots of lace, and an intensely gathered fine silk. This cream dress, is a skirt with two layers of fine lace. The center section is a very fine silk gather in rows down the front. The jacket section, is of cream brocade. It opens in the back and is attached to the bodice. There is a drape in the back that comes to the side. At that gathering point, there are ribbon roses. The sleeves have a smaller lace at the bottom.
The bonnet is cream brocade with lace and ribbon roses, and fine silk gathered around the inside of the brim. Ribbon ties finish off the design.
This dress is the very epitome of this era. A fancy froth of lace, drapes, and ribbons!
I love it.
