Old Gowns

Two interesting dresses, via Teresa: a reconstruction of the Irish Moy Gown, and a rather beautiful painting by Edwin Austin Abbey (American, 1852-1911) titled 'The White Dress'. I recommend the first one in particular to any resident or visiting dressmakers or costumers. And for the second, does anyone have any notion of its design, construction and fabric(s)?
