In response to Ball gowns and color, written by ElaineL on March 27, 1998 at 20:45:59
If you look in the links, you'll find several fashion pages there. I n at least one of them (probably Joanne's) there are some pictures of ball gowns from the Victoria and Albert Museum, circa 1803. One of these is bright, bright , red silk, and there's another purply black one somewhere. I don't have time to look now, so perhaps someone else can.
And Elaine, knowing your browser complication.....if you cannot get into these directly, let me know and I'll try and find the direct URL and possibly a picture of two, and send them to you e-mail.
