View of Back of Gown with Train22 viewsA view of the back of the gown with the train swept to the side. 1911/12 was pretty much the last time these wide, swirling trains were seen. An Edwardian lady was often more elegant-looking leaving a room than entering it!

1911-Bridal-BodLaceDet-01.JPG
18 viewsThis formal gown, like most Edwardian gowns, was constructed "from the inside out" in layers. The final two layers on the bodice were the French floral lace and silk satin over-bodice. The satin over-sleeves had to be entirely hand-sewn to the lace. The rouleaux embellishments are clearly visible in this picture.
