Exhibition Notes

While this dress was catalogued by students, and a condition report was made for it, it was not extensively researched. However, several details of the dress show the influence of Aesthetic or Artistic Dress and the Dress Reform movement, so it fits well into the story told by the research of Julia Fields, Anne Silk, and Emily Leimkuhler for other nearby objects. Perhaps another student will research it more thoroughly for a future project.
