1870's Plain White Gown

From the seller:

A beautiful 1880’s Princess style bustle wedding dress. The one piece dress is made of ivory silk. The front skirt has a pleated hemline. The dress has a magnificent long train that has a placket hemline and a lace dust ruffle. The dress is lined with cotton and has a back button closure. It is in good and sturdy condition. There are no splits or holes in the fabric. There are under arm repairs and a 3 ½ inch circle soil mark on one of the bottom pleats on the edge of the skirt front. A grand display dress. Bust 34 Waist 24 Front skirt length 40 Back length 71.

From Me:

I *think* this might be one of those Mormon wedding gowns I've seen once in a blue moon. They tend to follow the latest trend but without any flair. This one is following the styles from about 1877.
