Lady Hope, by Charles Worth .. From Lady Kembri Tomsen .

"This Victorian conversion gown, Lady Hope, by Charles Worth. The gown is from the early 1890s, not too long before M. Worth passed away. The gown is called a conversion gown because it could be used for either day time visits or evening entertainments. It's not quite fancy enough for a formal ball, but it would do nicely for evening receptions or dinners. It required only a change of bodice and accessories, and was something many Victorian women did in order to stretch their wardrobes."
Lady Kembri Tomsen
Breezy goes for a we bit of a different flair and adds
 this Darling Hatpins Lady Jean Derby with black lace Vail.
The day time bodice is a jacket style with long sleeves.  There are sheer inserts in the sleeves and a lovely lace collar.  The evening bodice has beige velvet sleeves with just a touch of black lace.  There are matching system skirts for each bodice.  The prim skirts can be worn with either set of system skirts.  There are two sets of gloves in this ensemble.  Day visiting gloves, and a pair of cream evening gloves.  The prim sleeves are only for the evening gown portion and have been left mod.
