About this scrapbook page:
Actress:Merle Oberon.Thanks to the home sewing machine and advancements in the textile industry,clothing could now be made quickly and less expensively than in prior periods.Mass produced trims, which had once been too costly for the average lady to afford, were now available en masse.Thus,dresses of this period were often lavishly trimmed.Evening gowns from this period were of the same silhouette as gowns worn for daytime.Oftentimes,women had two bodices for the same skirt- one for day wear
Design credits:
and one for evening wear.Necklines for evening wear were less conservative, highly trimmed, and had shorter sleeve styles. Sleeveless bodices were popular.Throughout this period,skirts with trains were worn for both day and evening wear.But…Wedding dress of Queen Victoria:The lace veil formed the flounce of the dress and was four yards in length and 0.75 yards wide.The dress's train, which was carried by the bridal-train bearers,extended over a length of 18 feet
