1890's Summer Dress
A charming 1895 cotton print dress that has been de-accessioned from a major New York City museum collection.. The fabric has a black pattern on a white background. The bodice has full leg of mutton styled sleeves and a wide ruffle that encircles the shoulders. The bodice is trimmed with black velvet inserts. It is unlined and has a front button closure. The skirt has a ruffled hemline and is unlined. The dress is in very good and clean condition. There are two dime size holes in the skirt. Bust 33 Waist 23 Skirt length 40.
It's so easy to spot an 1890's outfit...
