This dress is dated to the 1860s because of the fashionably long shoulder line. The princess style, however, is more typical of the 1870s. The homestead dress is a very comfortable gown and the unaproned waist is suitable for ladies in confinement.
This pattern is multi-sized 10 through 20. Sizes 10-14 require 6-1/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 16-20 require 7 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.
