Fashion In History
Day Dress
1903
White silk chiffon two-piece dress with S-curve silhouette; high neck collar and yoke of bobbin lace.
Thin, soft chiffon created the attractive flowing lines that are a distinctive characteristic of the age. Decorated with plenty of lace and thin, airy silk, this dress is a typical example from the Belle Époque period. During this period, dresses that created a flowing S-curve silhouette helped by corsets were often made of soft thin materials like those of this dress, rather than the thick, heavy materials used in earlier dresses.
