Printed Muslin Dress | c. 1837 (fabric: 1790-1818) | Bowes Museum
Following the example from the beginning of this decade, here we see the trends I mentioned evolving even more. The clearest change is how they’ve softened! Gone are the large sleeves requiring support of their own, lower and more natural is the waistline. The decoration (and all aspects of dress in general) have relaxed from the slightly outrageous styles of the late 1820s and early 1830s; however, you can see the early ’30s neckline and skirt shape has remained.
