But when I came a cross this charming garment from the 1880s, I knew I had to share it with you, partly because of its simple beauty, and also because it is a window.
Because of its humble nature, that this dress survives in such condition, in fact, that it survives at all is astonishing. Such clothes would have been re-made multiple times, and then picked apart when no longer useful as a garment, to use what fabric could be saved for other things. Enough of that, lets take a look at this sweet thing.
Made up in two different shades of the same printed cotton, the dress is not only very well constructed, but well balanced in design. Its a lovely dress, period.
