Memorizing 19th Century Fashion–Victorian Style

The featured photograph is of Queen Emma of Hawaii, who was a friend of Queen Victoria.  During my research of Victorian fashion, I found a Civil War Reenactment group out of Hawaii.  Notice the embellishments on Queen Emma’s dress.  This type of dress is for female Living Historians who portrait women of great wealth.

Note to self:  Memorize the 19th Century Victorian Fashion Chart below to insure the correct Civil War period attire.
