Fashion Date: Circa 1882-1885

Hairstyle Description: This style has short frizzy bangs that were fashionable during 1882-1885. The remainder of her hair is allowed to flow freely. Her hair length appears to be hip length. Note: The length of hair can appear longer or shorter when pulled forward depending on the cut and style.

Costume Description: This costume's collar isn't very tall yet as in later times- more of a flat rolled collar in a lace. The back of the dress shows definite bustled effect and not the tied back bustle look of the very early 1880's.
