This 1863 sheer dress pattern makes up as a lovely authentic civil war gown perfect for those hot summer days. The sheer outer fabric has a jewel neckline, moderately dropped shoulder, and is lightly gathered at the front and back waist. The sleeves are a medium-full bishop sleeve fitted to a loose cuff. Under the sheer dress is a foundation lining of white cotton, or a colored silk, cut low at the neck and known as a half high lining. The front lining is fitted with 2 darts, and the back is fitted with a curved T-back seam. The closure is at the center front, with the sheer dress and the lining each buttoning separately above the belt. The skirt waistband is attached over the waist of bodice, with the opening is in the left side-front seam. A pocket is hidden in the skirt opening.
