So, I was on FB marketplace last night and a lady put this dress up for Free. I was the second person to contact her, so she was waiting to hear back from first person. I got up this morning and had a message saying she had not heard back and had like 50 other messages from people wanting it. So, I got ready and went to pickup about 25 minutes from my house. She said she thought this was a silk bustle dress that was originally purchased in England and had been in a museum at some point, from 1860-1870 era range. This dress is really cool with a lot of detail. Plus, it is tiny. In today’s sizes I would think it would smaller than zero in women’s sizes. Such a neat piece of history.
