1680's Turquoise Silk Gown – Pirate Fashions

Turquoise Silk Gown

Day dress ca. early 1870s. Silk bodice, skirt, and overskirt trimmed with Maltese lace. Royal Pavilion & Brighton Museums blog: "The cut of the dress is a fashionable silhouette for the time. With the decorative overskirt and the fichu (the shawl-like neckline) and further decoration added with the lace trimming and the fabric bows on the bodice, this outfit is little more than conspicuous consumption, which was a common way for Victorian people to show off how much money they had."
