Picture Perfect 1887 Christmas Gown - Pretty Dress of the Day Challenge
I pulled the pictures of this 1887 Bustle gown off the site "TimeTravelersAntiques", which was a gown that had been sold in the past. I have mentioned how many gowns go from private owner to private owner and are never seen again, and this is a perfect example of such. It is just too pretty not be be shared with the world at large. I love this look, and it would be so easy to recreate! A sleeveless Christmas Red Velvet vest with skirt sides and back train, over a simple Ivory silk satin foundation skirt and matching blouse. Enjoy!
