Pinned Image Walking dress, 1895-1900. Every line in this dress emphasize the tiny waistline. This is skillful fashion design at its peak. Note how the wide ribbon trim seperates and cuts out the bustline, making it look wider, and how the slight slant of the black waistband elongates the torso and slenders the waist.
