Plaid 1860's Day Dress

From the seller:

A charming 1860’s burgundy, green and black stripe dress on a tan background. The neck, armscyes and waist are piped. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front button closure. The bottom hemline on the skirt has bands of fabric stripe fabric that are laid at an angle creating a pleasant effect. The skirt is unlined except for a wide band of cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in as found condition. There is mild underarm discoloration and some wear to the piping around the neckline. There are some scattered pea size holes in the skirt and a 3 inch and five inch repair on one side of the waist area. (See photos.) The dress still makes a pretty display. Bust 34 Waist 24 Skirt length 38 Width at hemline 116.

From Me:

I kind of like the repair - simply because it's nice to see they did "roadside" repairs in period too for wardrobe malfunctions. ;-)
