This listing is for an original lady's Ball dress from the Civil War period, circa 1840s. Imagine this dress dancing at the Court of Louis Phillipe! The bodice is lined with off-white cotton, is heavily boned and fastens in the back with hooks and eyes. The eyes are unique- very sophisticated. This is a fantastic rare early ball gown survival.

It's great for inspiration and study. Condition: Some discoloration- Either one panel was Lilac for contrast or the entire rest of the dress faded pretty evenly. There is extensive damage and stabilization to the lower part of the skirt. The dress is fragile and should be handled with care. The chest is about 33.

The waist is about 22. The front length is about 41 inches. Please note: Measurements are approximate and should be taken as maximum. Antique clothing items are not wearable UNLESS specifically labeled so in the description.
