Centennial ball gown. 1876 The grand gown is an amalgam of period features: half 18th century and half Victorian bustle gown. The bodice, reconstructed with Victorian boning and a petersham, retains the original sleeves. The petticoat was remade into the bustle shape.  The gown was made from delicate pale peach taffeta hand-embroidered throughout with ivory silk floss medallions. Some of them which were cut out of extra fabric and appliquéd as borders around the neckline and sleeves.
