American Civil War Era Printed Dress

From the seller:

A charming 1860’s green, gray and white plaid open weave cotton dress. The bodice is decorated with bands of black velvet ribbon trim. The front of the bodice is trimmed with black velvet decorative buttons. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front hook and eye closure. The neck, armscyes and waist are piped. The skirt is unlined except for a wide band of cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in very good condition. There are no holes or splits in the fabric. There is mild underarm discoloration mostly to the inside cotton lining and age discoloration on the lining along the edge of the hemline. A very sweet display dress. Bust 32 Waist 24 Skirt length Width at hemline 130.

From Me:

A nice simple but smart looking dress.
