Crinoline dress made of white muslin printed with motifs of water plants at the bottom of the skirt, and flying butterflies and other insects above. A short camisole lined with a white fabric with whalebones and fastened in the front with buttons. Slotted and flared long sleeves sewn with frills. A long, heavily-creased skirt with a train. A slim waist is highlighted with a belt fastened with a hook-and-eye clasp, featuring a broad, sewn-in bow. The dress is complemented with a scarf to be worn on the shoulders.
A very broad skirt known as a crinoline started its career in 1856, when August Person came up with the invention, which allowed the underskirt to be designed on the basis of a steel-loop cage. Such an underskirt provided support for many layers of fabric used for very broad skirts. The skirt size reinforced the impression of slimness of the waist, tied up in a corset. All these effects can be observed in the dress on display.
