1890's Summer Day Dress

From All The Pretty Dresses

From the seller:

This ca 1880s 2 pc dress is made from organza in light beige. It buttons down the front with 20 small MOP buttons, and is lined in tan cotton. It has loads of small age spots and there are splits in the fabric, the lining is good, but has a few stains. Sold as is for salvage, pattern or doll clothing. It measures 34 inches around the bust, waist is 25 1/2, across the back shoulder is 10 1/2 and it's 21 1/2 inches long from the shoulder to bottom of the point in front. The skirt is 26 inches around the waistband, hips are full and it's 37 1/2 inches long. Poor condition, as is.

From Me

The puff on the sleeve and the style of the skirt makes it a nice summer dress from the 1890's.
