How excited was I to find this beautiful 1860s Civil War era gown! Very excited because this is a historical period that fascinates me. What’s even more amazing is the antique photo of a woman wearing the dress, which is included in the sale. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find antique clothing, especially pieces that are in good condition. It’s also amazing that this dress wasn’t taken apart when the styles changed and remade into a new style. This gown is made out of a brown plaid silk taffeta and is one piece. The bodice is attached to the skirt. The majority of dresses from the 1870s-1890s had a separate bodice and a skirt. It has all the elements of classic dresses from this period, including gorgeous pagoda sleeves accented with brown velvet and satin striped ribbon. The bodice has two darts at each bust point which are reinforced with boning. It closes with hooks and eyes in the front of the bodice. The skirt has a pocket near the center front, which I’ve shown in one of the pictures. The skirt has box pleats and knife pleats rather than gathers. The skirt is very full and round–no train–and would have been worn over hoops and petticoats. I have displayed it over full petticoats–as it would have been worn–but they are not included in the sale. Narrow piping accents the waist. The bodice is lined with a heavy cotton and the skirt is lined with a waxed cotton chintz? The dress is in good condition for its age and fabric type, but there are some tears here and there near the bottom of the skirt. The underarms suffered the typical deterioration from perspiration and appear to have period mends. A great addition to your antique clothing collection.
