Absolutely gorgeous Victorian dress in blue paisley calico. High neckline with a charming collar, long bishop sleeves with a bit of pouf at the shoulder, and load of pintucks on the bodice on both front and back. Has a higher waistline, I would not call it quite an empire waist, but high. Looks to be a mix of hand and machine sewn. And get this...its not tiny. Medium to large size, I'd say. No label. I do not believe the buttons on this are original as they seem more modern and are a hair too small for the button holes.
Excellent vintage condition. Especially givens the age. There are a couple of pea sized brown spots, and the left side has some color fade. This is still extremely wearable.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 44"
Shoulder to waist: 12"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 56"
