Worth Evening Dress c. 1890s

Parts of an evening gown, probably Worth, late 19th century, simple whalebone bodice, scratched on the waistband. Skirt laid flat (complete?) in parma silk velvet embroidered in cream silk on the bottom with garlands of flowers and scalloped draperies held by ribbon bows. Two fringed draped panels held at the shoulders with the same decoration in silver embroidery, yoke gathered bust, (missing, small accidents, shaped for photography).
