A very lovely original 1850s to 1860s Civil War era two piece gown. First I must apologize for my photographs, it seems my camera just wont cooperate on this fabric. The fabric is a lovely silk in luxurious shade of dark wine w blueish purple blended that gives it a metallic appearance then into a narrow wave like pattern. The bodice is lined in brown cotton buckram; A simple construction w piped neckline. 2 Metal stays on each side, V back, sleeves are tapered having an interesting 3 wide inset that is created with narrow gathering on each edge and flounce type draping in the middle (this is the same on the border of the skirt) and a 9 button front closure. The buttons are beautiful; half round w matching fabric that is covered with black tulle netting. The skirt is created in 5 gores; a flat front with the hook/eye closure being in the front towards the left side (the hook side is piped), the back has 5 area of tight cartridge pleats. The overall skirt is very full and can accommodate a smaller hoop (not the real full crinoline type) if you so desire.

There is a gathered panel inside with the pleating, I believe it is to give a bit of plumping. It is in Very Good overall condition, a few tiny pinholes, some minimal fraying on the wool hem binding and minimal organic underarm marks. Extremely sound with no seam openings.

When I say Very Good Condition. Please feel free to ask any?

BTW, my best offer option is for a higher price than the starting price Not a lower one!! Our storage and office areas are smoke and pet free environments.
