Another 1912 worth evening gown. This one features a brocade underskirt with train. The overbodice and skirt are of black chiffon or georgette. Note the “V” inset on this gown as well–a popular look in it seems.

Circa 1893 Silk evening dress made by Louise Winter. This evening dress is decorated with net panels embroidered with gold thread and beetle wing cases from a species of jewel beetle. The panels were probably made in India where Madras and Calcutta were centers for beetle-wing embroidery made for the European market. The iridescent blue-green beetle wing cases reflect the light like sequins.
