From the seller:

1900 or late 1800's Cotton Petticoat
Tons of Ruffles in the back
Small shell or MOP buttons in the back
Larger rows of ruffles in the front
thin straps, trimmed with very delicate lace
deep scoop neck in front & back
has been some mends made to it, but still in great vintage condition
very beautiful, ruffles are very intricate, and very detailed.
great collectors item, also great to wear, or upcycle!
bust circumference is approx 38in
waist is approx 30in
hips are open

Measurements are taken with garment lying flat & seam to seam:
Bust- 17in
Waist- 13.5in
Hips- 18in
Length- 54
Split length- 29in
Sleeve- sleeveless
Condition- excellent vintage condition, minor repairs, not noticeable!

very good condition. no holes, spots stains or other defects noted!!

From Me:

Honestly? I choose this because I love the play of monochrome and light in a couple of the photos. My guess is 1890's but it could easily be worn later as well.
