Dress made by Elizabeth Keckley

Dress made for Mary Todd Lincoln by Elizabeth Keckley. The skirt is not accurately depicted in the photograph; it should be worn over a domed hoop. The dress had both a day and evening bodice, which was typical of the period. The dress is shown in this photograph with the evening bodice.
