I thought this would be interesting… I was going along on the internet trying to find mix and match 1860s, and this is what I found. I’ve never seen anything like this, and if anyone has pictures of similar mix and match let me know. 1860s quilted skirt and a bodice with bows both in silk. I encourage you to go to the website because there are more pictures to be seen there: http://www.victorianelegance.com/1800.html
