Antique 1900's Grey Calico Dress Long Sleeve Floor Length
Exceptional turn of the century grey calico dress.
Floor length, long sleeved with sweet collar. Mother of pearl buttons up the front with hand stitched button holes. There is one pocket hidden just below the right waist seam.
Extremely strong and wearable. Great condition for age with some markings to fabric and wear, but to be expected for being 120 years old.
The top of the dress unbuttons to the waist which then has thread loops and metal hooks to secure the skirt to the waist band at the front. The back of the skirt and the top are connected so they cannot be worn separately but with a tiny but of work with a seamstress it shouldn't be hard to make them separates.
So many special details with this dress, one that can be worn and treasured for a lifetime.
