Last week I showed you an early 1870s dress in pink and white stripes, with butterfly patterned lace trim, and black bows. While not everything about the dress tickled my fancy, I thought the half & half black and pink bows were a brilliant touch, but many of you did NOT agree. In the same way, opinions differed greatly on whether the front to back skirt wrap was brilliant, or tablecloth-y. In fact, the ratings were all over the range for the dress, bringing it in at a 7.4 out of 10.
This evening dress in deep green silk didn’t come with more of a date range than 1910-15, but the fullness at the lower hips and tapering hem, paired with the skirt drapery, place it firmly in 1914, give or take a year. The mix of textures is typical of the 1910s, giving complexity to an otherwise simple design.
