I love the stripes! This reminds me of the simple, clean lines of dresses that maids would wear in wealthy households. Sometimes when you compare them to the extremes of fashion that the rich wore, the servants costumes have this kind of understated elegance that stands out by contrast.

Yes, not everyone wore huge panniers and excessive pearl embroideries! I love the more simple dresses of the period, less is usually more :)
