Costume College dress rehearsal part IV, the 1874 day dress

The last outfit change of the day was to check the overall fit and the suitability of the new bustle also with my other early bustle dress. I was consciously pushing the boundaries by dressing my hair in a traditionally girly style. It was inspired by Jen's 1870 Peterson's scan "new styles for dressing the hair" which I've always loved. I also might have stuck the bonnet a little too far on the back. But perhaps the ladies in period had such mishaps too occasionally. It's hard to judge the angle looking at yourself from the front while getting dressed.
