Evening dress, American, ca. 1872, cotton. Metropolitan Museum of Art: Originally worn in 1862 as a bridesmaid's gown. In the early 1870s, the owner altered the dress into its current polonaise style when, on very short notice, she needed a party dress. The delicacy of the organdy and mull and the beautiful execution of the alteration exemplify her resourcefulness and talent with dressmaking.
