This listing is for an original lady's dress from the Civil War period. It's made of Cerise moire, which I think has a silk/wool content.Cerise is cherry- a purpley red. It's trimmed with self-fabric bias bands. Very elegant, the bodice is lined with brown cotton and fastens with hooks and eyes.
It's buttons are non-functional. The skirt has a magnificent sweep.It has a brown cotton facing. There is a matching button-trimmed belt included.
It's great for display, inspiration and study. Condition: Some light discoloration and occasional small holes. The dress was heavily altered and has been put back as closely to its supposed original state as possible.The fabric has a strong smell from storage, but can be aired out to minimize. The chest is about 36. The waist is about 24. The front length is about 40 inches. Please note: Measurements are approximate and should be taken as maximum.
