Back to Basics
Apparently I photographed this dress backwards. It looks right but when I uploaded the image to the archiving system the metadata said it has a cowle neck front. Hmm. I went and showed it to Eunice and we stared at it. Then I said, "look for the tag?" Yes, indeed there is a tag on the inside of the v-neck. I have to go back to basics here and remember what my mother taught me growing up, tag goes in the back.
If I am having trouble with a simple garment like this, I fear how many times I will have to photograph the more complicated historic pieces. Good thing we are taking a break from dresses soon and moving on to shoes. 800 pairs to be exact!
