Metmuseum: This is a nice example of the teagown made by the House of Worth. This shows the luxurious lifestyle indicative of prominent women of the time. The teagown could be worn without a corset and was therefore a more comfortable form of dress.
Evening dress, attributed to Maison Worth, ca. Ivory tulle net embroidered in gold and ivory silk in large trapunto-embossed abstract patterns, friezes of shamrocks and thistles. Two panels in skirt flare and close on the sides with fringed silk tassels.
