1890's Day Dress

From the seller:

This is a great cotton walking dress. it is in the Color of robin egg blue with gold stripes. it is accented with beautiful black Chantilly lace. the skirt is in great wearable shape with just a few small pin holes, I believe these can easily be darned. pictures show, the skirt has inverted pleats in the back. it has vertical pencil pleats. the bodice is in great wearable shape. it has a few breaks in the lace that can be easily fixed. the bodice is lined in cotton that does have staining, but it does not go through, this is a nice piece to add to your collection.
shoulders 14"
bust 34"
skirt longer in the back

From me:
*sigh* There is no such thing as "wearable" when it comes to a dress that is 120+ years old! There just isn't! Can the seller not see the shredding in the silk around the neckline?

We learn from these dresses, we do not wear these dresses.

This one is doesn't appear to be robin egg blue to me.  It appears to be a light bluish grey with a pale gold stripe.   Based on the ridiculous sleeves, it's very 1890's.
