From the seller:
A stunning 1880’s gray silk and printed velvet one piece bustle antique dress. The gray fabric has a strong purple under tone. The velvet fabric has an incredible line pattern in shades of burnt orange, gold and olive green on a navy blue back ground. The bodice is trimmed with burnt orange silk. The tops of the sleeves have epaulettes that are made of the printed velvet and backed with burnt orange. The dress is lined with blue silk and has a hidden front hook and eye closure. The front panel of the skirt is made of the velvet fabric. The skirt has a bustled back and a built in bustle cage. The back has two long flowing panels. The dress is in very good and sturdy condition. There is some light underarm discoloration and a couple of loose seams on the side waist. The white circle spots are from the camera flash and are no present on the dress. There are no holes or splitting. Bust 32 Waist 24 Skirt length 41.
Tell me that the front of the skirt doesn't look like early 1990's upholstery fabric!
