Pumpkin pants or trunk hose – short male pants. In these two 19th-century paintings, are Francis II and Lord Darnley. The portraits are by British painter Richard Burchett. Both men are wearing pumpkin pants, the proper term is “trunk hose”, with their doublets or jackets.

Ladies’ dresses from the 1890s. These sleeves are called “leg’o’mutton sleeves” because the shape reminds of a lamb’s leg. Also, note opulent hats.

Vintage silk Chantilly bobbin lace from around 1870. It would be used as an overlay on skirt hems. This lace looks stunning.

Two vintage silk bustle gowns from the Victorian era. The sage green visiting gown on the left dates from the early 1880s, while the leaf green gown on the right is from about 1886. The colors are perfect and the cuts flattering.
