Sisi lived in the so-called Victorian era, referring to the reign of Queen Victoria of England from 1837-1901. The Victorian dress was kind of outrageous, with corsets, gigantic hoop skirts and crinolines, and later the bustle dress, emphasizing the back of the skirt. These are the dresses as you know them from the SISSI trilogy, which played roughly from 1853 and 1860.
In this same period the American Civil Ear took place from 1861 to 1865. The dresses are also known as Civil war Dress, or Southern Bell dress (the Southern Belle representing a young unmarried women of the upper class of the American South). Examples of Civil war dresses can of course be seen in the movie "Gone with the Wind" from 1939.
