Two toned gown

The Costume Museum of Canada had several dresses on display during last weekends Doors Open event.  There was a very nice two toned one from the 1880’s.  Enjoy.1880's dress 2 tone CMC a


The sides were asymmetrical with the underskirt peaking out of large cut outs on the over skirt on one side.1880's dress 2 tone CMC bThe other side was draped with the under skirt showing at the bottom.1880's dress 2 tone CMC dOf course, there was a lovely bustle at the back.1880's dress 2 tone CMC cThe bodice had an interesting layered effect at the lower back.1880's dress 2 tone CMC e

Some of the photos make the bodice and over skirt look grey but in reality they were more the purple tones of the other pictures.  (I don’t mind the grey look and might one day create one in grey.)
