It features a dainty rounded collar edged in lace and front placket with mini buttons add contrast and detail. The collar and the full sleeves are made from accenting fabric. The dropped shoulders have shaped sleeve caps that top the long cuffed sleeves that fasten with thread loops and buttons. A pretty shaped peplum crowns the fully gathered skirting and surrounds the waist. Side ties make for a better fit and form a pretty bow in the back. The fully gathered skirting is mid calf length. The back fastens with three small buttons and ties in the back.
The delicate apron is a must for a young girl in civil war times. This apron is trimmed in a bit of lace and mini buttons up the front. It features tiny bias cut bretelles that span out over the shoulders. It is very full with a lace edged curved hemline towards the back and ties form a pretty bow at the back.
