1840's Plaid Dress

From the seller:

A charming 1840’s red plaid cotton dress. The bodice has a fan pleated front and ruching at the pointed front waist area. The neckline, shoulders, armscyes, inner seam on the sleeves and waist are all piped. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a back hook and eye closure. The skirt is attached to the waist with tight cartridge pleating. The skirt is unlined except for a band of cotton at the edge of the hemline. The dress is in good condition. There is some fading, mostly to the sleeves. There is a 3 inch repair at the top of one sleeve and a few tiny holes in the sleeves. There is a small ¼ inch split on the back of the skirt and light soiling on the inside lining. Antique clothing is for display/collecting and should not be worn. Bust 34 Waist 26 Skirt length 40.

From Me:

The pleated front, the "wing" caps on the sleeves, the sloped shoulders - yeap, 1840's.
