Last week I showed you a natural form gown with an almost unnatural amount of ornamentation and trim. You admired the skill of the dressmaker, which is hugely responsible for the 7 out of 10 the dress managed.
This week’s Rate the Dress is a frock I’ve been meaning to feature for quite some time, partly because I’ve never decided exactly how I feel about it. And I’m not going to figure that out tonight, because I’ve got acute coryza (because calling it nasopharyngitis just sounds affected 😉 ) + the aftereffects of spending the weekend up a scaffold paint stripping our house.
In other words, I’m dumb, and I hurt. Everywhere.
So be brilliant for me. Point out all the interesting (good or not) things about this gown. The Museum Rotterdam dates it to 1913-17, but I’d put it a little earlier – 1910-13 is a bit more likely. Other than that, it’s up to you.
What do you think?
