During the day, dresses worn by women were typically one piece with the bodice and skirt sewn together or two pieces with a matching bodice and skirt. Curves were achieved via sewn seams or pleats and sometimes with the assistance of whalebone. Shoulder lines were dropped and necklines were high. Collars and cuffs became removable to allow for a variety of sleeve styles.

Crinoline Day Dress: Day dresses were either separate bodices or one piece. The necklines were typically high and it was fashionable for plaid prints to be used. Most were cinched at the waist then flared out due to the crinoline hoop.
