Eye catching trim

On a recent outing to an antique shop I discovered one lone cabinet card.  Often they are boring or damaged but this one was in wonderful condition (at least the person was in good shape…the corners got a bit dinged) and NOT boring!  There is a trim on the bodice that I’d love to replicate on a future dress!


Its the cording on the front that caught my eye.


Love the hat too!


The photographer is G E Willis and he was working in Carleton Place Ontario. He worked there from 1873-1895.

Her dress and hair says 1880’s to me.
