Shades of Lavender

“There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.”

Collection’s Highlight: Changeable-Silk Dress

This piece is in exquisite condition, and quite breathtaking in person. The changeable silk is a purple blue color, and although it seems strange contrasted with copper, blue, and white brocade it comes together as a whole very well. The bodice has the common 1850s waist which is dropped much lower than previous styles and decades. The skirt would probably have come out a little more with the use of several petticoats. It also has a set of long tight sleeves that could be attached to the sleeves.

Bodice, ca 1850, Silk, L: 12 in. The Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, New York, N0079.1977a.
