A unique example of a period cotton dress from the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries, this tan colored dress includes V-shaped, white cotton, pointed lace yoke (front design) on both the bodice and skirt. The lace has a black thread detail. The short standup collar is also trimmed with a black ribbon. The three-quarter sleeves have some pleating at the shoulder, and at the drawstring cuff. The bodice is unlined, and shows signs of alteration.
