These portraits show a woman wearing a crinoline evening dress of the style that prevailed from 1866 ro about 1867 with vee neckline, quarter length close sleeves, and a bertha. The middle portrait shows a longer and more elaborate coiffure and her dress is a half crinoline so it could date to the later 1860s.
