Ca 1840 Civil War Era Cotton Print Dress Rare Corset Gown Victorian Museum For Sale

Ca 1840 Civil War Era Cotton Print Dress Rare Corset Gown Victorian Museum

This is one of the most amazing print dresses I have ever seen. I believe it is from about 1840 and it appears to be completely hand stitched. The dress has a cross over front with lots of gathers and pleating at shoulders which come together in middle bottom of bodice near waistband (see photos). The long sleeves are straight and have 3 rows of ruffles at shoulder and 8 rows (2 rows of 4) of teeny tiny ruching along wrist and 2 hooks and thread loops. The bodice is lined with a heavy ivory cotton which is a corset in front with 14 holes for laces and 8 areas of boning. Skirt has a 1" waistband with 2 hooks and 4 threaded loops and is heavily gathered/pleated at waist. There is a 2" pocket in front center of skirt at waist (please see photos) and a larger hidden heavy ivory cotton pocket on right side of skirt about hip level. Skirt is unlined and has 5" hem, which could be let out if needed.Measurements: Bust 32" Waist 23" Waist to hem 37" Shoulder to Shoulder 14" Sleeve 25" Hem circumference 162". Condition: Condition is absolutely amazing for this garment. The print is even and unfaded, fabric is sturdy. There is one 1/2" hole in right shoulder which is hidden by top ruffle, there are 2 missing pieces of boning, roughly 2" of teeny spots to lining, one 1/8" and one 1/4" tears to top layer of waistband fabric, two 1/2" and one 2-1/2" vertical tear in skirt, otherwise ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CONDITION. A RARE FIND INDEED!!!!Please email with any questions and I will be listing many items from a collector who is liquidating their collection of early men's, women's children's clothing and accessories.
