The Museum of Man and Nature has quite a bit of clothing but most of it is showing the clothing of the Aboriginals in this neck of the woods. Don’t get me wrong. I am interested in this clothing and I appreciate their function and beauty but I don’t love it like I do a fabulous DRESS. That is why I nearly fell through the glass when I saw this darling.It doesn’t translate well in this photo but it is a plum purple color.
The cool thing about this dress is the little dingle balls that look like fur that has been dyed to match the dress. Again I apologize that the photos didn’t turn out so well. The dress was encased in a little glass room with dim lighting. Obviously, this was done to try to preserve the dress.Details of the bodice.I tried to get a shot of the back but they only had this itty bitty mirror to work with.And the cute little hat.
