On a July evening in 1903 at the restaurant atop the Hotel Beresford, Edith Vail Ross sang at a private dinner party hosted by Mrs. Marin. The restaurant featured stunning views of Central Park and the gathering of about 10 guests dined at 6 in the evening. Edith wrote home to her parents that she wore her “old rose dress” for the occasion. It is not known exactly what that style would have been, but here are some fashion choices of the day. What would you choose for Edith to have worn that evening?
