White Linen Dresses with Blue Pattern

MoMu - Fashion Museum Antwerp

The white linen dress on the left, dating to sometime between 1870-1875, presents a snapshot of high-end and fashionable tailoring in the mid 19th century. The styling and print of this dress was so popular in its time, that the Jacoba de Jonge collection (which houses this piece at MoMu) also contains a less expensive copy (on the right) giving the appearance of fashion for a lower price point.
