Fabulous Plaid 1840's Dress

From the seller:

A classic 1840’s lilac and white plaid cotton dress. The bodice has all the elements of 1840’s designs, including a fan pleated front, a long pointed front waist and ruching on the front waist and shoulders. The shoulders, armscyes and waist are piped. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a back hook and eye closure. The skirt is attached to the bodice with cartridge pleating. It is unlined except for a band of cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in very good condition. There are a few scattered pencil tip size holes. There is some very light underarm discoloration and scattered age spotting mostly to the skirt and the inside lining. Most are pea size or smaller. There is one 2 inch age spot on the edge of the skirt and one 3 inch period mend in the same area. A very pretty display dress. Bust 30 Waist 22 Skirt length 40.
