Evening dress, 1909-11, Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Belonged to Marjorie Merriweather Post. This garment represents a typical late Edwardian party dress with a high waist and fitted upper body placed on a boned bodice. Other typical features are the short, "tulip" shaped sleeves and square neckline. The under-base of the skirt is yellow silk taffeta with an over-layer of grey silk organza embroidered with flowers in green cotton thread. The dress has a formal evening train.
