Dress, House of Worth 1906. A more modern dress by Worth. This has some modern features but also contains many classic looks from previous Worth pieces.This dress doesn't feature a bustle but the fitted waist gives the illusion of a fuller bottom. 2/1/16.
This gown is made from a very special fabric which was woven à la disposition to fit the shape and dimensions of the skirt so that the butterflies flutter upward from the hem and, being graduated in size, seem to disappear in the distance
