Goldenrod Cotton 2 Piece Dress Cord Trim Layered Skirt circa 1890s

Regular price $145.00 $0.00

Interesting late 1800s 2 pc dress set, from a farm in Iowa. Hand made of cotton, was likely quite fashionable albeit not a high end textile for the look. May have had a layering piece between top and top layer of skirt? Hard to say. Almost a mix of pioneer meets city, though certainly came from a very rural area.

Bodice hooks up back with metal hooks and eyes, striped heavier cotton with stand up collar trimmed in goldenrod cord. Peaked sleeves. Skirt has hook and eye closure up back, layers a dyed lawn cotton over a heavier darker cotton that matches the color of the bodice. Some faint spots on overlay as shown, but superb wearable condition and larger bodice size for this era. Shown with a sweet bar brooch not included (but available HERE)

Measures

top- 17" shoulders, 40" bust, 36" waist, 19" long, 22" sleeves

skirt- 24" waist, 40" hips, 43" long
