Circa 1900 pink and purple chiné taffeta evening gown woven with sprays of violets and edged in purple and black chiffon and lace. I'm crazy about that intense shade of purple, contrasting with black lace.
Three-piece ensemble ca. Wine-colored silk trimmed in eyelet lace accented with chenille. Fourteen buttons on bodice front, cotton lining, draped overskirt with satin bows, bunted bustle, and underskirt with pleated hem.
