Polished Cotton Blue Skirt

From the seller:
This auction is for a most gorgeous antique 1800s polished cotton ruffled skirt from the Victorian era. It has tons of material and the polished cotton is of the utmost quality in an exquisite and rare shade of blue. It is not aqua or peacock blue as photos may appear. The waistline is very small and the front is higher in front than back (see Photo 2). One will love this........... It is being sold "As is" since there may be minor flaws inherent with age;there are no rips, tears or stains....it is in very good condition. It has a wonderful drape, is very full and has the crisp swooshing noise. It is simply stunning...

From Me:
My guess is this is from the 1890's. The ruffles, the overall shape of the skirt, and the slight train would indicate the late Victorian era.
