The plaque says (if you can’t read it) that this empire-waist gown was worn by Miss Rachel Morgan at her wedding in Philadelphia, ca 1810.
I don’t remember the details about this room. I just loved the colors and silhouettes.
This was my favorite room of all. I’m so mad at myself for not getting a better picture of it. If you click on the image you can see a slightly bigger version. I love the carpet, the wall paper and the trim color. I love the dark wood with the unadorned white textiles. This room is for a woman who is independent and creative.
