Never take cheese at dinner! I'm glad I'm not an 1840s woman, as much as I love the fashions...
This dress is beautiful in its simplicity; but I am stunned by the black gown in the 1845 plate. Again, simple, but with some special touches.

Isn't the anti-cheese statement funny? I agree about the simplicity of the dress and the one pictured in the fashion plate. You can really focus on the dress itself. That fashion plate is from the Los Angeles Public Library Casey Fashion plate collection, which is really extensive.
