Lovely Simple American Civil War Era Cotton Dress

From the seller:

A charming 1860’s cotton print dress. The fabric has a burgundy stripe pattern on a cream colored background. The bodice has a dropped shoulder line that is trimmed with two layers of small ruffles. The neck and sleeve cuffs are trimmed in the same manner. The armsyces and waist are piped. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front button closure. There is one missing button. The skirt is unlined. The dress is in good condition. It has not been cleaned so there is an area of light age discoloration on the side of the skirt. (See Photo.) There is one 4 inch mend in this same area. There are also a few other pea size age spots and one a few small pea size holes in the skirt. A sweet display dress. Bust 34 Waist 24 ½ Skirt length 39 ½ Width at hemline 134.

From Me:

I'm thinking about 1864 for this one, give or take a year.
