1857 Promenade Dress Pattern
Product ID PH1857
1857 Promenade Dress Pattern
PH1857 - 1857 Promenade Dress. Sizes 8-18 available. Worn over a full, round hoop skirt, this afternoon costume evokes memories of a Scarlet O'Hara pre-Civil War dress. The two-piece dress sports the wide pagoda sleeves popular during the 1850s. The original was of moiré striped silk taffeta with silk fringe. Pattern includes bodice, skirt, under-sleeve, bustle and collar. This pattern was taken from a dress worn by Hannah Billingshurst of Juneau, Wisconsin. Hannah was the wife of United States Representative, Charles Billingshurst who served from 1854 to 1858. She probably wore this dress in her role as a congressman's wife between 1857 and 1859. As would be expected of a congressman's wife, Hannah chose to wear a fashionable but conservative gown. Hannah's dress has all the necessary fashion elements of the late 1850s including the full skirt worn over a hoop, and the fitted bodice with a high, rounded neckline, long peplum, and full "pagoda" sleeves.
