The Civil War dress costume is a lovely shade of blue with white edgings.
I’m pretty sure the material is satin. It is shiny and soft and feels rich.
The dress is actually three pieces. The skirt, the top, the sash. It is NOT period correct (means not made as dresses were back then). This one has elastic in the arm band and the neckline, and the waist has a draw string so it will fit pretty much anyone that doesn’t have a HUGE bust. I am pretty big (meaning fat of course) and it fits me.
Since it has all the elastic and the adjustable tie in the waist band it will fit someone small too.
It has beautiful ribbon around the neck, arms, and the bottom of the skirt.
This dress is very well made and is like new. It has been tried on a couple of times to show it to family but other than that it has been in a box in my closet for 5 years. I kept meaning to sell it but never got around to it…until now.
You can see some pictures of similar dresses on this search page (there are several made the same way with elastic and drawstrings).
The other dress is Purple Medieval Renaissance Faire dress and is pretty big. I’m not sure but I think it is a 2XL. It was even a bit too big for me back then(haven’t tried it on against since then) but the way it is made if you wear a belt or chain with it it looks good anyway. But probably not good for a smaller woman…unless you can sew and know how to take it in.
It has chiffon around the neck and the sleeves are chiffon. It is very well made too and is velvet. You can see similar dresses on dress forms here.
It would make me very happy if you share this post. Especially with anyone who might want to buy one (or all three dresses). They need a home with someone who will actually wear them.
Please share. Thank you :)
