Curator Notes

Good condition. Bodice is torn at waistline. Staining on the skirt. This garment was tailored to the owner's specific body shape and therefore does not fit the dress from perfectly as evidenced by the back closure not meeting all the way. Wrinkles have been released as much as possible without damaging the garment.

Textile

Silk, Velvet, Jacquard, and Lace
