1883 day dress
Walking dress, Paris, ca. 1880-83. Silk velvet, silk satin, machine lace. Three pieces (bodice, skirt, bustle pouf). The complex draping of the overskirt creates the classic bustle silhouette which was hugely popular in the 1880s. This silhouette required an undergarment support provided by metal bustles or thick, voluminous pads filled with horsehair or cotton. This fullness made the waist look smaller. Mint Museum
