1857 Wedding-dress

Background on weddings and dresses being previously posted, here is Miss Work's wedding dress:

Silk basque dress with two tier skirt, open sleeves, 1850s style.

It's a basque bodice of light-weight silk (fully lined) with open "pagoda" sleeves, worn over a two-tier skirt.  Undersleeves and white collar to be worn with dress. I'm afraid the dress-form doesn't do it justice.
