Victorian Era Dress Bodice & House Slippers

More found pictures.

From The Tanner House Museum

I took these pictures when I accessioned them because I thought the construction was interesting.

This is the "Under-bodice." The top covers with just a couple of hooks and eyes.
Here is the bow that is in the back. I thought the construction was interesting because it is one piece of material (velvet) cinched up in two areas.

Close up of the cinching.

These shoes aer felt with beautiful black hand stitching. It also goes around the throat of the entire top of the shoe.
