1888 Reception Toilette
The classic elements of the late 1880s silhouette, including a tailored bodice, tight sleeves, off-the-floor skirt, and prominent bustle, are all seen in this elegant two-piece dress. The original of gray silk faille with white silk neck inset and gold braid was made to be a wedding dress.
