A gorgeous orignal lady's pre civil War era dress created in a lovely perfect for summer sheer gauze fabric. The juxtaposed print is stripes, cluster of Victorian floral cabbage roses and another design consisting of very tiny flowers - all quite unique. The narrow piped bodice has an underbodice which has 4 short bone stays and fastens in front with hooks/eyes; the bodice itself is fastened with tiny delicate tatted buttons.
A piped waist skirt w/ very tight cartridge pleats from not only front side seam to seam but also completely in the back. The very full will accomodate a hoop skirt is not lined thus it is sheer. The sleeves are quite attractive; a 1.5 wide very tightly smock gathering on the top at the piped shoulder seam, an overall very full sleeve to the wrist where there is a double ruffle and tight cuffs; I find them to be similar to an earlier Gigot sleeve.
In overall very good displayable and certainly study/inspirational condition; being lightweight gauze there is some expected some holes and short slits; on the bottom front is a hole w a period repair. A short area at the waist the pleats are loose (the safety pin area) as is also an short area on the left back sleeve.A very lovely pre Civil War 1850s to early 1860s day dress.
