Truly special and rare late 1800s black & white cotton pinstripe day dress from the calico dress era. Hand and machine stitched. Great details, like the thick wrapped cotton stitching on the collars. The bodice is lined in muslin with black painted wood buttons. Belt is attached to the back waist.
The holy grail of farmhouse dresses!

Excellent antique condition. Looks like it has been stored in a cedar chest since it was made. Minor wear on muslin lining.
