This listing is for an original lady's day dress from the Civil War period or soon after. It's made of silk taffeta trimmed with lace and velvet ribbon. It has the most fantastic peplum! Basques like this came back into fashion late in the CW period, maybe near the end of 1864. They were very fashionable for the following couple of years. This dress is short- only 37 inches long at front. It could have been a short walking dress or simply a petite lady. The skirt rquires an elliptical hoop, It wouldn't fit over my domed hoop. The bodice is lined with brown cotton and fastens with hooks and eyes. The skirt is lined with green cotton- an unusual choice, but beautiful! Belt and brooch are not included. It's great for display, inspiration and study.

Condition: Some light discoloration, repairs and small holes scattered throughout. At the front waist, there is some residue, possibly glue. I recommend patching over it with silk or placing a belt over all. The bottom 2 buttons are missing, but as the buttons are ornamental only, respacing them would solve that.

They are pad-back, so use care in removing and restitching. The chest is about 33. The waist is about 24. The front length is about 37 inches.
