This week’s ‘Frock Friday’ selection is a walking dress from 1885-1890. It is constructed of both silk and metallic thread, and the rich, autumnal hue of this frock is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
It is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume collection.
Saw two dresses I love when I was shopping in @sainsburys this morning, so heres #frockfriday . The black mesh one would look great with a leather jacket and heels! And I really love the bold print on the second dress, plus it's all my favourite colours. And it's one you could wear all year round! On it's own or over a thin jumper in the winter or even a blouse! @tuclothing 💛
This frock was made by Boston design house, L.P. Hollander & Co., in the 1890s. It is constructed of wool, silk velvet, silk chiffon and lace. The detailing on the bodice is truly phenomenal.
It is from the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

For this week's 'Frock Friday', I found an ethereal pink day dress in silk and silk velvet, dating from around 1906. It was made by the American designer Girolamo Giuseffi (1864-1934). Image courtesy of the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
For this week, I selected a two-tone afternoon dress from 1895 that is perfect for the transition into fall.
