Mid to late 1860's Blouse/Bodice

From the seller:

This bodice dates to the Civil War era and is fashioned of a textured cotton in rich sepia tones. There are no closures left to the front, new hooks are needed. Trimmed in self ruffling with matching braiding running through the center. There are several faint age spots that are hard to note….In excellent wearable condition. Measures 30 inches around the bust, 21 inches around the waist with 14 inches in its length.
Vintage clothing is described to its best and sold as found…and described as accurately as possible. The items HAVE NOT been cleaned and should be cleaned prior to wearing at the discretion of the buyer. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed. Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor.

From Me:

Please pardon me while I'm in a state of shock. I can actually see the pictures for once AFTER I've uploaded them. *keeps fingers crossed*

So, post Civil War era but 1860's. It also seems a hint on the small side so maybe a young miss bodice?
