E.E Holland’s Wedding Dress, 1887, American
Chicago History Museum

This wedding dress shows the transition in skirt style in the 1880s. At the beginning of the decade, the bustle was flat with a long sweeping train, and by the mid-to-late 1880s, the bustle was much more pronounced, jutting out directly from the waist.
