+Civil War Era Day Dress

A dress of this type would have been worn from 1864 to 1869. The bodice, sleeves and overskirt are made from Fugitive Green broadcloth while the underskirt is worked in Butter Yellow broadcloth. The underskirt features a deep ruffle with fugitive green satin ribbon accent. The bodice is fully lined in self fabric while 6 tiny buttons march below the bias cut collar.

Triangle shaped sleeve jockeys, sometimes referred to as bretteles, are a period correct embellishment. As you can see from the photos, yellow satin ribbon accents the jockeys. Matching satin ribbon decorates the sleeves and cuffs.

The overskirt is is trimmed with coordinating fringe which has a subtle golden thread running through the header. Fringe was a common embellishment of the late 1860's, especially on hems of skirts and jackets. Yellow ribbon highlights gathers in the overskirt, adding a further note of authenticity to the era.

This dress would be especially appropriate for Elsie Dinsmore or Mildred Keith, both of the Life of Faith Collection®. It would also suit Addy and Kirsten of the American Girl Collection®.

Doll clothing is carefully handmade by me in my smoke-free home. We do have pets. All exposed seams are diligently finished with an overlock stitch.
