TROVE fashions in the 1890s in Australia

After doing a bit of analysis of one of my ancestor's dresses from the 1890s (see this blogpost: Fantastic book about ancestor clothing!! Out of style by Betty Kreisel Shubert), I decided to do a bit of trawling through TROVE to find some more examples of women's dress styles in the 1890s in Australia. Here are a couple of the illustrations I found.

A description of "new bodices" (February 1894)

From page 364 of The Queenslander, 24 February 1894, with the article titled "New Bodices"

An illustration of "a new style of linen dress" (November 1894)

The following illustration appeared in The Oakleigh Leader (North Brighton, Vic.) on 10 November, 1894.
