Blue Plaid Mid 1860's Dress

From the seller:

Delightful C1850-60 Antique Civil War era 2pc blue plaid silk hand stitched dress in very nice original condition.

All lined with polished cotton, trimmed with ruched blue trim. Lovely full shaped sleeves.

The waist is 24", bust is 34". The skirt measures 52" long in back and 46" long in front. The full skirt measures 140" around!

The edges of the bodice are piped, the buttons are braided fabric covered. The bottom of the skirt is edged with a matching blue trim.

The condition of this Antique dress is very good. There are a few tiny holes in the silk however it is generally in excellent condition. There are light underarm stains with very slight silk breakdown in this area, but again this is not a big issue.

This is a very pleasing Antique dress which could be worn. It would make a nice addition to any Antique clothing collection.

From Me:


I swore up and down I already posted this dress but I can't find it so...here it is!
