This civil war day dress is made of authentic civil war reproduction fabric by Marcus Fabrics called: "The Civil War Chronicles". This fabric has a dark plum background with gold flowers with black centers and smaller light plum flowers.

The collar and undersleeves are made of a lightweight ivory cotton. The bodice is fully lined with the same ivory cotton and features a rounded collar and oversleeves. Black soutache trim accents the bodice, the oversleeves and the bottom of the skirt. There is a delicately detailed metal and jeweled button at the neck which picks up the plum colors of the dress fabric. The dress has a very full skirt that has been pleated where it attaches to the bodice to further enhance the small waist that was the main concern for young women of this era. The skirt has two rows of soutache trim and has been hemmed using the machine for a durable "blind" hem. The dress fastens in the back with three buttons and handmade thread loops. The undersleeves have tiny buttons at the cuffs for decoration and fasten with snaps. This dress was created using a Thimbles and Acorns pattern.

All exposed seams have been serged to prevent fraying and provide durability.

Sewn by me in my smoke free home.

The doll and boots are for display only and are not for sale.

The dress will be mailed to you within 2 days of payment receipt....this is usually faster unless a weekend is involved.

Please convo me if you have any questions, and thank you for looking!
