This green silk bodice, ca. is an example of some that are in my novel--an innovation that allowed women to remove the bodice but stay in the skirt. Different bodices were used for tea, dinner and the opera, so as to allow a woman to change more quickly. 1850s Fashion, Victorian Fashion, Vintage Fashion, Historical Costume, Historical Clothing, Green Gown, Green Silk, Vintage Dresses, Vintage Outfits
