Antique Late 1800s 1900s Black Cotton Calico Dress, Victorian Edwardian Wrapper Prairie Dress, Primitive Pioneer Dress


I'm getting major Laura Ingall's Wilder vibes in this antique late 1800s early 1900s Victorian Edwardian black cotton calico prairie dress! Most likely would have been called a wrapper - you can see the outer silhouette without tying the waistband is very loose and flowing. Interior cropped gauzy cotton bodice with 5 button down closures - you can actually see faint stamped writing on the interior bodice. Possibly material from a flour sack. The outer calico dress has a winged collar neckline with three mother of pearl button down closures before the ruffled yoke that encircles the upper bodice. Long sleeves with double button closures at hems. The most flattering double back princess seams and center back gathers that extend down the small center waistband with a loose flowing skirt that is elongated at the center back and ruffled hem. Two short side ties I've shown tied in the front for a nipped waistline.
