    Default A group of work dresses

    Friends,

    The next several posts on this thread will list some used, smaller sized ladies work dresses.

    They are all well made, lightweight cotton, work dresses.
    Each features construction details to be expected in a good period dress, including lined bodice, piping at waist and arms, coat sleeves, and pockets. These are used dresses, so expect to tighten some hooks and eyes as needed to fit your figure.

    I have these in hand to sell and ship for a young lady who is experiencing some extreme financial difficulty, and is in the process of moving. I will not have them long, so do not hesitate if these interest you.

    Please pay attention to measurements. These are used dresses and are not returnable.
    Terms are Paypal Only. Price includes shipping by US Priority Mail. If insurance is desired, this will be at your expense.

    Questions or 'I'll take it' to thlawson@bellsouth.net

    Y'all help a poor girl out here, please.

    Default Dress 2

    This black cotton workdress is unusually lightweight---if you must be in mourning in the summertime, this dress is for you. It features a lined bodice, functional buttonholes, coat sleeves, piping at waist and arms, three piece back, and a narrow band collar. Extensive hand work includes fine gauging at the waist.

    This dress is an excellent choice for a mid to late war Southern impression. The 'war time substitute' buttons are wonderful hand finished persimmon seed buttons--24 of them, plus two small black manufactured buttons.

    Bust at underarm 41"

    Waist 28"

    $85. Paypal only.

    Default Dress 3

    This lovely plaid is quite becoming--and semi sheer, an excellent work or day dress for a farm wife. It features piping at neck, arms and waist, a three piece back, lined bodice and coat sleeves. Add a neat white collar and cuffs and you are ready for church or a summer picnic

    Bust at underarms 34"

    Waist 24"

    $85. Paypal only

    I just love it when a plan comes together

    Dress 1 is sold (maroon)

    Dress 3 is sold (plaid), plus several others I didn't even get to list yet

    Dress 2 remains. (Black). Anyone who has ever made persimmon seed buttons will tell you the dress is worth it for the buttons alone.

    Final call for Dress 2, black cotton with Persimmon Seed Buttons (documented in multiple diary accounts of the period).

    If its not sold by Monday night, the ad is closing.
