This is a beautiful brown calico dress for a young girl. It is almost completely hand sewn. It has 7 button closures and hand sewn also. The bodice is fully lined. It has a stand up ruffle neck. It has a very deep hem that is probable a hint that it was made for a growing girl. The dress is 35" top to bottom, 10 1/2" across the waist, (21" waist) and it is 13" across the shoulders, and armpit to armpit it is 12" and from armpit to cuff the arm is 13". It has the really tight wonderful pleating at the waist. It is a rich chocolate brown and off white calico print. The only condition problem is a couple of good sized stains on the inside lining of the bodice but it did not get on the dress, amazing! I can't say enough nice things about this dress. It is heart stopping! Circa 1870-80.
