Charming authentic and ALL ORIGINAL antique prairie style high waist Civil War tiny print cotton calico wrapper dress. Adorable tiny brown/purple fabric print design. Definitely beautifully dressmaker made with wonderful detail throughout with extremely large deep front pockets in middle front and pocket lining fabric that matches the lining on the bottom inside of the skirt. Bodice is tightly fitted with under bodice and top is detailed with a corded type finishing work at shoulders and waist of dress. Measurements: High waist 27", Bust 31-32", Underarm to waist 5", Length of skirt 36", Edge of neck to bottom of dress 48", Tightly gathered waist with very very full fabric skirt measuring 128" around the bottom.Fabric is is very crisp as if dress was hardly if ever used. No underarm staining or any stains from body or wear of any sort.
However, it does have issues. As you can see there is a large rip in the bottom area of one sleeve...Like it got caught and torn on something. I think this could be pulled together and nicely mended.
The bigger issue is there are some large spots across the bottom and some in the skirt. I believe these may be water spots. The spotting may be permanent. As I indicated I believe this dress may possibly not ever have been worn or washed but stain damage occurred when it was stored. The drawback are the spots but the good news is that you have a 100% authentic charming Civil War dress almost 160 years old for your collection.
