She who pwns people with history

An evening gown from the end of the Victorian Era, with a photograph of a lucky model wearing it!

The cherry iconography is pleasing and cheerful. The masterful way the fabrics is joined creates various formations of cherry bunches which is especially effective at the back. This would have been a very expensive textile as the motifs are printed on the warp threads before being woven, which creates a blurry effect. Interestingly this is a fanciful rendition of the cherry branch since cherry trees do not have both blossoms and fruit at the same time.
