This civil war day dress is made of a civil war era reproduction fabric from Moda called: "Cattails and Clover" by Kansas Troubles Quilters. This fabric has a dark rust background with tiny black and red flowers.

NOTE: The orange is actually much darker and appears more rust colored in person than in the photographs.

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 black button at the neck. 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 black buttons and handmade thread loops. The undersleeves 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!
