1857 Promenade Dress
Worn over a full, round hoop skirt, this  afternoon costume evokes memories of
a Scarlet O’Hara pre-Civil War dress. The two-piece dress sports the wide pagoda sleeves  popular during the 1850s. The original  moiré-striped silk taffeta gown with silk fringe was worn by the wife of a Wisconsin congressman.
