I'm not sure if I've seen that dress before, it has a high neck and the bell sleeve is satiny rather than frilly.

What era would that be from? The high neck made me think Victorian, but I wouldn't think the sleeves would match that era.

Blurb says 1882. I'm not sure why it reminded me of the blue dress, just the sleeves I think.

The trim is a riot; that's the ball fringe on my vintage (1970s) bedspread!

Not sure if the one on the left is a reincarnation of the lady in red or not.

Madeleine, there ya go. :)

Misfit, the one in red has a sharper and more upturned nose and mouth, both. The upward tilt of the lips is very different.
