1820's Silk Dress

From the seller:

A rare 1820’s taupe silk dress. The dress is all hand stitched. The bodice has padded cording around the neckline and on the sleeve cuffs. The shoulders and armscyes are piped. The bodice is lined with tan cotton and has a tie closure at the waist. The bottom of the skirt is padded and has a band of padded cording. The skirt is unlined except for a wide band of tan cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in good and study condition. There is a wide area of underarm discoloration. (See photos.) There are a few other small pea size age spots. There are a few tiny pencil tip size holes and the inside lining on the bodice has splits. (See Photos.). A lovely dress to add to an early textile collection. Bust 32 High Waist 26 Skirt length 38.

From Me:

I love the 1820's. So cute!
