Back at the costume museum

Last weekend, Shirley and I got back into the vaults at the costume museum.  We were dressing mannequins for a showing of Edwardian display.  Not my era but it did have some merits!

The beading and embroidery is lovely on this!

I reminds me of the dresses you start to see in the 1920s.  I wonder what was worn under it.  A white slip?  Black?  It would have been a show stopper at a party!
