Perfect Romantic Era Dress

Taken from Heartnsoul1 on ebay:

Charming roller print cotton early gown, all original and dating to late 1820's early 1830's. Exceptional construction details throughout. Dropped, piped and ruffled capped gigot sleeves, criss cross draped front bodice with slightly to the back piped shoulder seams, tidy cartridge pleating all the way around skirt/waist, with wide waist band, back hook and eye closure, with piped seaming. Bodice only lined in linen, with early pocket form hanging from bottom of bodice interior, hem faced in household cotton, all hand stitched. With the following issues: small breaks to exterior cotton back of shoulders both sides, some faint age related spotting scattered here and there, small breaks to bottom of sleeves, these breaks at some point someone has used the iron on facing material to bind the breaks, ragged hole top/inner side of one sleeve, missing some hooks and eyes, cotton is still strong and displays nicely skirt fabric sound, no underarm issues. Chest measures 32", waist 22", sleeves 26", length from shoulders 53.

From Me:
