1860'S WESTERN FRONTIER CIVIL WAR OLD WEST PERIOD GOWN. It is done in a beautiful RED textured satin! And it is a true red!
The bodice, which is attached to the skirt at the left side back around to the left side front, has a fairly low V'd neckline. It fastens in the front with hooks and eyes. Originally the neckline and center front had black eyelet or lace attached, however it has been removed as you can very faintly see some stitch marks.
The bodice has princess seams with a pointed hem on each side seam. It has 3/4 length sleeves that have a row of black eyelet just above the elbow slit. It is fully lined in a cream cotton. The long skirt is VERY wide at the hem and it has a row of black lace ruffle around the hem over a row of brown silk or satin! The skirt has an attached apron of black lace.
The silk or satin lining to this apron has frayed quite a bit - it should be replaced or re-lined as the black lace is fine! The back of the skirt has an attached bow and sash over the rear.This large sash and bow were also edged in black lace which has been removed - the stitch marks show here also and there are a few threads left. It does have a fray on the sash where a snap is attached to snap it higher on the back. This lovely gown has a label from Western Costume Company. This is a custom gown so is not marked for size, but measures APPROXIMATELY a 32"/34" bust and a 25 waist. The gown does have some stitch marks from being altered over the years. Please keep in mind the age of this dress and the fact that it WAS WORN in the movies it should be professionally cleaned!
