Wedding dress with leg of mutton sleeves, M.A. van Asch, 1908
Anna Clara Lieftinck married Jonkheer Hendrik T. Teding van Berkhout in Groningen on 8 November 1908. This dress is incomplete: it was originally worn with a wide, ruffled lace flounce that covered the upper part of the bodice from shoulder to shoulder. The bride had borrowed the flounce, as well as a lace veil, from the groom’s younger married sister.
