Trimming the Dress!

I have spent the past few days simply going through my historical fashion books, as well searching online, simply for the purpose of finding and appreciating the dresses of the 1860’s. For the basic foundation of bodice and skirt, there are so many styles and interpretations that reflect the individual wearer. One particular method to individualize and decorate one’s gown is with trim. From braid, to ribbon, tassels, pom poms, rouching, and buttons, the list is potentially endless. Here is a sampling of some of the gowns I found that show a variety of trim and style! I hope that it helps give you inspiration as you plan your next gown!
