D496, 1860's 3 Piece Apple Green & Lace Dress Civil War:
IMPORTANT !!!!!!! PLEASE read entire Description & Instructions before offerding! FYI, Unless otherwise stated, all measurements are in Inches.D496, 1860's 3 Piece Apple Green & Lace Dress Civil War: This 3 piece ensemble was extremely fashion forward in its day. It is made of a silk fabric that is dyed in the color that was known as "apple green." The bodice has a bust of 30 and a waist of 22.5. The skirt has a waist of 22, a length of 39 and is 124 inches around the bottom. The three parts consist of the bodice, over skirt and the under skirt. This fabric does not hold its color very well and all three pieces have heavy discoloration and stains. I don't see very many small holes. The bodice also has under arm repairs and heavy stains and some deterioration. The over skirt has discoloration throughout and damage to the lace trim. The rosette at the waist band also needs some repair and the waist band has a large hole where it closes. This is not visible when the band is fastened. It is missing its hooks and eyes. The underskirt is in sturdy condition and has discoloration but not as bad as the other two pieces. Someone has patched the waist band and has not put the pleating back properly. There are a couple of places where lace needs to be tacked back into its original position, and the lace at the front closure of the over skirt is tattered. See photo. The offerding will start at $0.99 on this historic dress from the Civil War period. It has charming appeal when seen on a dress form. Some people say that this color of green was created by using arsenic. The dress has an old trunk odor. Check out the other antique clothing we have on .
