Miss Sedley, 1903

"Miss Sedley wears a delicately pleated, draped, high-necked gown, 1903.

The twisting lines of the bodice emphasise the corseted curves of her silhouette, and her high collar would have been held up by wire of whalebone.

Hairpieces and hair pads were often used to create the required volume, and hair was held in place with combs."

Scanned from "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
