An “artistic” gown definitely not in keeping with the mainstream fashion of its day. While Paris decreed a tight corset, bustle, and elaborate surface decoration, a great many women wore this simple, flowing style as an expression of artistic sensitivity and taste. The original is of muted blue-green wool, with front panel of matching watered silk shirred at waist and throat.

The Gibson Girl bride who wore this two-piece wedding gown in June 1899 incorporated several fashionable elements into its design, such as the “mousquetaire” sleeves which are gathered along the seam line, a high collar, a v-shaped waist, and a gored skirt en train. The original is of medium-weight silk satin and ornamented with chiffon, beads, and lilies-of-the-valley.
