Antique 1800s Indigo Calico Work Dress


Such a rare piece!  Late 1800s women's workwear dress.  Beautiful indigo calico.  Interior bodice piece.  Can be worn loose or with the tie belt.  

Label: none
Fabric: Cotton
Circa:  Late 1800s
Condition:  Overall very good.  The  dress shows normal, expected wear.  There is some staining here and there (the worst in the the bottom side of the skirt).  There are some patching under the arms.  It also appears as though the width was taken in under the arms.   The fabric is strong and the dress is very wearable.  Keep in mind, this was an everyday workwear dress and the "not perfect" condition reflects this.
