550, 1860's 3 pc. Daytime Civil War Era Dress Tobacco Brown: This Tobacco brown faille dress was created in the last half of the 1860's decade. It has the huge skirt with the huge bustle in the back. It is three pieces but someone has tacked the bodice and the over skirt together at the back. The over skirt has all of its original under ties. The bodice and over skirt are both in good condition. The bodice does have underarm stains. These aren't noticeable when on. The bust is 32, and the waist is 22. The over skirt has a waist of 22 and a front length of 30.5. The under skirt has a waist of 28, a skirt length of 42 and is 134 inches around the bottom. The waist band of the under skirt has been reworked and it wasn't a good job. It is now 28 inches and it should be around 23. They have taken out the pleating and not put it back correctly. See photo. For my pictures I pleated it in the front with pins so it would hang correctly. The fabric of this ensemble is in good condition. It is very sturdy. If you were tiny enoughyou could wear it once the under skirt is fixed properly. If you just want it for exhibition you can just pin it. This ensemble came from a major museum collection. The offerding will start at $0.99. Will quote reserve upon request. We have lowered our reserve.
