Extant Civil War Era Ladies’ Wrapper

or Morning Dresses

  A Extant wrapper from the collection of Kathryn Coombs

The wrapper is made from printed cotton, the weight is between a voile and a calico.

Two prints are used:  one a border print and the other a coordnating all-over print.  The wrapper is only lined in the back.

The sleeves are of a moderate pagoda style, and the wrapper has a self collar.

The front panel is cut all in one and the skirt is attached in the back with fine cartridge pleating (as in the KayFig pattern).

A tiny pocket is worked into the front panel (see last picture)
