I suspect that the ivory silk faille skirt in this 3-piece dress, ca. 1860, is not original, but that the original skirt was in the same blue silk damask as the bodice and overskirt. Boned bodice lined with ivory polished cotton. Sleeves are hemmed with ruched satin ribbon like that on overskirt. Large satin ribbon rosette in front. Bodice laces up the back.
