A ladies' navy blue and white organdy bodice trimmed with Honaton lace, purple silk and black velvet ribbons, accented with green silk and silver steel beads is on view. Also featured is a ladies’ evening gown of cream satin silk with heavily embroidered cream and gold chiffon draping over the shoulder and acting as an overskirt. The back of the chiffon panel acts as a train, and a beaded rope acts a belt. This display is located in the Historic Clothing Case.
