The front and back views of the dress. I set the measurements on my dress form to 31-22-34. The waist fits perfectly but it's just a little loose in the bust. It appears to have been made to be worn over and Edwardian S-curve corset. The bodice appears to lean forward slightly. The neckline is extremely low and likely would have been filled in with a high necked blouse, or guimpe.
A close-up of the shoulder, showing the tucks that start at the front shoulder seam and go to about the middle or the armscye seam. The fabric is't really this shiny, but a soft black with only a slight sheen.
The sleeve. The sleeves are two pieces, similar to an 1860s coat sleeve. The velvet ribbon is sewn only at the top edge.
The pleated hem.
