Pretty Dress of the Day Challenge
Bustle Ensemble ca. 1885
I have always enjoyed the bodice design on this one. I like how the striped fabric was placed & cut to add visual interest, and how the beading up the front of the bodice plays off the fabric placement. I might even have guess a later 1878 date for the year with the asymetrical apron front. Not a color I could wear, but I still love the overall design.
