Amazing antique calico print woman's dress 1860
Civil War era calico dress in amazing condition. The color is a soft burnt orange but has a glint of yellow. It is 49" long and is all hand sewn. The bodice is lined in a brown cotton soft as butter. The hand stitching is small and fine. The gathering of the skirt is beautifully done. The hem is backed with 7" of a blue brown and orange print cotton fabric. The bodice closures are the old big hook and eyes. The dress has a kerchief of the same calico as the dress and goes around the shoulders and pins at the waist in a triangular form. I see no problems with the dress but the kerchief has scattered lighter areas on one side. This is an amazing dress and is surprisingly light weight and sturdy enough and in good enough condition to be worn. Please email me for all the measurements. This is a great early dress. Circa 1860
