Hi - I'd love to pinpoint an era for this antique dress set. It's a patterned polished cotton with cotton velvet. The floor length skirt has tight gathers below the waistband - possibly the addition of the brown cotton fabric was due to prior damage to the patterned fabric. The skirt has a pleated hem and is unlined with exception of the short straight under hem tier. It has one hook/eye at center back and three snaps below the skirt opening - quite possibly an addition. The bodice jacket has cotton lining, however, it is not boned at the inner seams. The jacket has contrasting cotton velvet at collared neck and down center. It closes down center with cut steel buttons. At first look, I would have sworn she is Victorian, however, with no inner boning and no lining for the skirt, I would appreciate any information.
