This outfit, titled Fabiola,was designed for the winter collection of 1903. It is an example of the so-called 'S-Bend' silhouette present in fashion design up until about 1908. Although flat-fronted corsets did help create the silhouette by pushing the bottom back and the bosom forward, the effect was further exaggerated with puffed and draped bodice fronts and skirts with flat fronts and sweeping back fullness.
