1860's heirloom based design

Based on the 1860's heirloom gown I have seen at the Perth Freemantle Jail , at the current exhibition Woman Transported .
Pure white silk gown , lined bodice with handbeaded crystal panel decorating the chest has been handstitched into place across the gathered yoke . Fine white guipure lace complements this eye catching design .

I'm still in two minds about the matching bonnet for this garment though ....
