Early 1860's Stripy Dress

From the seller:

Brown, silver and white plaid day dress as is for study. Skirt has multiple splits hidden when exibited by full busy patterned skirt. 22 inch waist and 33 inch bust. Large pagoda sleeves trimmed in needle period lace and self fabric ruching. Period brass buttons. Back neck fabric loss but lining is firm and strong. Fabric loss under arms with some patching in this area. Displays well. Fully lined. Collar not included. Please examine all photos.

From Me:

It looks stripy to me, not plaid, but it is a pretty fabulous early American Civil War era dress.
