1880's Black Striped Bustle Dress

From the seller:

Beautiful black and white stripe !800's satin Victorian walking suit. Wonderful shape, very wearable. 5 buttons missing in front, but i think you could take buttons that are hidden under sash and replace that way. One button missing in back. Winner will be very pleased with this antique beauty.Sorry too small for my mannequin so I cannot button her closed. STEAM PUNK This is one piece. Bust 30" Waist 22" Hip 36" Length 56"

From Me:

My guess is this is a young miss dress based on the size (ie, juniors). It looks like it was an 1870's dress that was redone in the 1880's based on the upper bodice neckline treatment.
