couple. Great photo, someone photographed this woman from the back because he realized what a great photo would result from this view of her stunning dress. Her waist is made to look smaller by the dress pattern and design.
Tailored walking suit ca. late 1890s. Front wild mussel shell button, velvet facing on collar, puffy sleeves at shoulders, slight padding at chest, shaped and fitted through bodice. Pink silk satin lining. Skirt with hook & eye closure, with gores & narrow waistband. Carolyn Forbes Textiles/ebay
