#3402 - c. 1877 Sage Green Silk Taffeta and Cream Jacquard Bustle Gown with 3 Foot Train!
I don't know if you have tried to find one of these gowns recently, but I can tell you that it's not easy to find. Excellent condition! Amazing! It will make you believe that you ARE in 1877 - it looks that new. Fabulous sage green color silk taffeta gown beautifully designed with pleated ruffles and bows. All trimmed in cream silk jacquard bows, ruffles, ribbons, poufs. Pleated 3 foot long train is trimmed in lace. Even has all ten fabulous brass flower buttons. So perfect, it looks like one of those miniature porcelain dressforms, but it's the real thing and wearable if you are a small woman. If you only have one outfit on display, this is the one you will want. Measures: 30" bust, 24" waist, 40" long from waist to hem in front, 78" long from waist to hem in back!
