ca. 1870 Hungarian gala dress (Iparművészeti Múzeum - Budapest, Hungary) From  From longliveroyalty.tumblr.com/post/91987522151/fripperiesandfobs-hungarian-court-dress-ca

The bodice frames the white gathers of an under-garment in a laced blue over-bodice with ruched edges. The skirt has a beautiful white lace apron and a black lace hem flounce. The person wearing this trusted the surfaces beneath her would be clean enough to risk using lace for passementerie. The sleeves look like they were not part of the original dress.
