I'm in the process of creating another 1860s Sheer Dress this week! This dress is made of 100% Silk Organza - Ivory with a beautiful small Ivory plaid pattern. The bodice will have a half-high lining of ivory silk with a delicate lace trimmed edge. I'm reproducing the dress in the above painting. Sadly, I don't know anything more about this painting. Isn't the dress lovely though? Below are a few more sheer dress images to inspire you.
