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

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 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".
