Dress, U.K., ca. 1872. Cotton, trimmed with silk braid; bone buttons. Unlined. Victoria & Albert Museum: “This is a jaunty, sensible woman’s outfit of the early 1870s ... A hemline just at the ankle indicates a garment intended for walking outdoors. ... It is made of cotton, so it is easily washed and dried. Despite its practical use, the ensemble still incorporates the details of fashionable dress, with an overskirt in front and a bustle worn underneath at the back.” by madelyn
