This high Victorian collar was one of the most useful reference images I had in developing a customized 1884 french gown. Regrettably, I do not recall the approximate date these occurred, commonly, nor do I know for sure if it was quintessentially French, but, Ah. It’s pretty, and it worked well with the gown design. Yay creative license? ~ <3

It was popular back then for the mother to hide under blankets and curtains.. creepy. They were called ‘Hidden Mother’ Pictures, look it up.

Subjects needed to remain still due to the longer exposure times required back then, so mothers were often asked to hold their children tightly while the portraits were being exposed. It was common practice back then, but the resulting photos are pretty eerie when you look at them now.
