FABRIC COVERED BUTTONS

Scattered areas of discoloration on both pieces, especially noticeable underarms, silk velvet trim shows wear, some pull at stress areas, one missing button on bodice, waist on skirt is adjustable-likely a later alteration,
The green dress in the fashion plate looks a lot like the extant one here. And is anyone else looking at the extant one and thinking "CURTAIN DRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!" just in silk rather than velvet? I think it's the sash....
