1830's Cotton Dress






From the seller:

A very lovely original circa late 1830's lady's floral printed cream silk challis one piece gown that is a wonderful example of a transitional style. The bodice is lined ans stayed, with a fan pleated front, piped at all the seams, with fashionable slender capped sleeves, a two part back with a blind hook and eye closure, a cartridge pleated waistband, and an unlined skirt with a deep turned and faced hem. 15" from shoulder to shoulder, a 31" bust, 25" waist, and 49" from shoulder to front hem. Shown over a foundation that is not included. Recently de-accessioned from a New York State museum with a 1968 museum accession numbered tag still attached. In good clean sound as found condition, with some light perspiration to the bodice lining, a few little spots above one cuff, some surface wear at the other cuff, some wear to the waistband piping, pin dot to 1/4" scattered holes and spots with a few larger 1/4" to 1/2" holes, all from normal use. All is reflected in the reserve price for this beautiful transitional gown

From Me:

This one makes me want to actually make an 1830's styled gown.
