Gorgeous indigo died calico dress, bodice and skirt circa 1890s. The skirt has SO much fabric, it is incredible. There is also a lovely pocket.
The bodice has two subtly different, coordinating patterns and cute little puffed shoulders.
Bodice is lined and buttons up the front, no boning in the bodice. Skirt has one button at the waistband on the side.
The color was difficult to capture, but the most accurate color is from the photos taken flat outside. I have included photos taken indoors on the dress form to show how it would look when worn, but the color is a bit washed out in those.
