The original civil war period dress, from which ours was made, was worn by Anne Margaret Magill Smith, of Roswell Georgia.
Mother of 2 confederate soldiers, one of which died of desease just after Gen. Johnson's surrender, but before he could return home from North Carolina.
The original dress is currently on display in the Atlanta History Center. Or as some of us like to call it "MECCA".
Our dress is made from a pattern taken directly from the original.
Just as the original dress, ours is made of printed cotton, the skirt is softly gathered and has one pocket sewn into the dress. It is turned and hemmed at the bottom. The bodice is fitted and has a waist band that is 1 1/2 inches wide. The waist is fastend close by means of 2 sets of 2 hook and eyes.
The corsage has a deep V neckline Which
which we have taped with a deep blue color cotton. (The original used printed). The corsage is lined just below the sleeves with muslin that is 6 inches wide and reaches to the waist only.
The Sleeves are set with a welt of the same material as the dress.
The "cuff" of the sleeve is folded back, making a "V" shape which has a 1/4 inch ribbon of deep blue cotton applied to the leading edge. (Again, the original used printed). The cuffs close with a single hook and eye.
Variations, regarding color of trim or prints are available at your request.
