Simple Brown & White 1860's Cotton Dress

From the seller:

A classic 1860’s Civil war brown and white stripe cotton dress. The sleeves have a tight fitting cuff that have a three button closure. The neck armscyes and waist are piped. The bodice has a front button closure and is lined with cotton. The lining has a hook and eye closure. The skirt is attached to the bodice with cartridge pleating. It is unlined except for a wide band of cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in good and sturdy condition. There is some light underarm discoloration on the inside lining only. There are a few scattered small pea size holes and age spots. A charming dispaly dress. Bust 32 Waist 26 Skirt length 39 Width at hemline 108.

From Me:

I'm pretty sure this would have been worn with either an apron or some sort of sash to hide the drawstring waist.
