theclothingproject:  Collection’s Highlight: Wedding Reception Dress Detailed pictures of this gown’s embroidery are some of the most popular photos on the Clothing Project tumblr account. It is easy to see why, the embroidery still pops with life and color almost 200 years later. However, I have been hesitant to photograph and feature the entire piece. The gown is too delicate for a dress form, and the color of the silk mull has not faired as well as the embroidery.
