Teal 1870's Bustle Era Dress

From the seller:

A majestic 1880’s deep teal blue bustle dress. The bodice has a high neck and front button closure. It is lined with cotton. The skirt has a pleated front and the center panel is decorated with blue satin ribbon bows. The back of the skirt has a draped panel that is gathered into a bustle effect. The skirt is lined with cotton and has ties on the inside for adjusting the bustle effect. The dress is in very good and sturdy condition. There is slight underarm discoloration, a 1 inch stress break under one arm and a few minor pencil tip size holes on the bodice and one small pea size hole on the skirt. A very attractive display dress Bust 32 Waist 24 Skirt length 40.

From Me:

I'm pretty sure this is 1870's based on the waistline, bodice length, and sleeves. Also, it's rather simple (although lovely) which would make more sense in the 1870's.
