Black and White Edwardian Era Dress

From the seller:

Antique Late 1800s Civil War Period Dress w/ Parasol
A lovely, 2 piece, Civil War period dress made with light checkerboard silk fabric trimmed with black velvet ribbon. It is lined with cotton. It uses hooks and eyes. The fabric is delicate with some wearing, especially at the waist. It can be reinforced with some Stitchery Witchery mesh backing. It is very clean and can be used as great display piece, re-enactment or period movie or play. The measurements are:

Shoulder to Shoulder 13"
Waist 27"
Chest 34"
Skirt Length 39"
Jacket Length 19"
Sleeve length 19"
Comes with a white silk parasol. The paint is wearing and there is a very, very mild stain on the fabric.

From Me:

Last time I checked, the American Civil War was in the mid-1800's, not late. Either way, this dress is from either period. It is from the 1900's and I LOVE that collar and cuffs! The parasol most likely isn't Edwardian - it looks far newer to me than that.
