Since we’re discussing Mary’s dress in the previous post, let’s chat about this one.
I think Mary’s dress is the prettiest of the three, but its style is so different than the other two dresses in the picture…and from other pictures we’ve seen for S1 and S2. The waist line and fitted bodice just don’t seem to be the right period. It looks almost late Victorian, not Edwardian progressing into WWI followed by the flappers of post WWI. I said somewhere I think she looks a little matronly here and it’s the older style of the dress. Somebody correct me on this…what year was this dress in fashion for a young woman?
