'Absynthe Light' Aesthetic Gown

To-a-T presents the 'Absynthe Light' Aesthetic Gown. As so many people request this dress in other colors, particularly lighter ones (as is appropriate for the style itself), I've made it in a pale green and turquoise. Designed by Walter Crane in 1894, in contrast to more popular styles of the time, the Aesthetic and Bohemian styles reflected more artistic and modern values, including women's rights. And of course Beauty and Liberty. :-)

More interesting information about the movement and it's ideals can be found here.
