Pretty in Pink Frothy Mid-1860's Dress

From the seller:

A dreamy original Civil War Era circa 1865 lady's three piece sheer white organza gown that is trimmed in pleated ruffles with Mechlin lace and deep rose colored pull through ribbon accents. A draped bodice with long lappets shown wrapped around the waist, and an asymmetrical overskirt with a gored front and cartridge pleated sides and back to the waistband, and an apron like front overskirt with a drawstring tied waistband with bow and matching lace above the the front hem. Shown over a full bodice foundation and a hoop skirt that are not included. The bodice has clear glass buttons to the front closure. A 38" bust, 34" waist and 54" from shoulder to front hem. In good clean as found condition, with a few tiny age flaws that include pin dot to 1/8" holes, most to the skirt, some very minor perspiration to the lining of the sleeves, a small mended tear to the back of the overskirt, and a sprinkle of tiny holes above the back hem. Quite a delightful organza gown of the Civil War era

From Me:

Oh my! A larger sized dress! I love the pink accents.
