Today I made a trip to Fredericksburg to visit with a dear friend and fellow innkeeper, Andi at Schooler House Bed and Breakfast. If you follow our blog, you have heard us talk about Schooler House when we first came to the area as the place we first stayed in. It was exciting to see Enzo and Zeppe, their Spinones and to see how much they have grown!
My visit with Andi was wonderful and long overdue, but I was also there to see an old dress she had tucked away in her closet . . .
This is a beautiful blue and gold silk with fringes around the neck line, sleeves and wrists. At the wrist, the sleeves flair. It looks to be Victorian, but I am unsure of the time period. Maybe Pre-Civil War or Post Civil War. But what ever time period it comes from, it is just stunning!
I have placed it in the Turner Suite, our Victorian Bridal Suite. With the new blue and gold chairs, this dress fits perfectly!
Come take a tour with us at Belle Grove Plantation and see this stunning addition to the mansion!
