Evening Dress, 1916 The role of lady's maid involved many tasks, and she was responsible for all aspects of her mistress's appearance. This dress is made of beaded gossamer-light, blue-silk tulle (a netted fabric more commonly used in veils and ballet costumes). Although it would have looked beautiful when worn, the maintenance and care of a dress like this was difficult as the fabric is extremely delicate and easily damaged.
