1860’s Green Plaid Cotton Dress

This dress is also styled in the typical way of the Civil War period. The fabric is a cotton plaid homespun with linen cuffs and collar. The collar is trimmed with handmade tatted lace (I tatted it myself). The buttons are black jet. The sleeves have sleeve caps, and the armholes, sleeve caps, and waistline are piped.  It was made with an old Heidi Marsh Pattern “Emily Wyant“.
