Curator Notes

Good condition. Stains on all three pieces of the garment. Evidence of seams let out on bodice to possibly accomodate the growth of the wearer and two buttons are missing from bodice. Wrinkles have been released as much as possible without damaging garment. Bustles from 1870s have been placed under skirt to create correct shape. Ensemble belonged to Elizabeth Brown's grandparents.
