What the turn of the century mama would wear


Lovely, isn't it? This is a pre-1910 maternity tea gown, and I just think it's gorgeous. I love everything about it, and would wear it even without a baby bump. I'd like it in several colors, too, please.

The only problem for me would be the sleeves, which I would constantly be dipping into my chicken velvet soup. I'm perplexed about shoes, however. I'm curious to see what shoes a lady-in-waiting would wear with this. Ideas?

I had thought about posting a turn of the century 2000s maternity dress to compare with this one, but decided it would just be too depressing. Let's just gaze upon this one for a while.
