The Black and Cream Civil War Dress is a simple yet elegant renaissance-styled one-piece dress that stayed popular well into the Civil War and beyond, thanks in part to the sophistication and beauty the style lent to all who wore it. This dress is made from extremely high quality taffeta, making it very silken, soft, and luxurious as far as look and feel are concerned. The upper part of the dress is simple and black, with cream-colored ruffled decorations as well as a cream flower decorating the breast. The skirt gives the appearance of being layered, even though this dress is one piece, it is first an elegant, pleated cream, before becoming black. Three lines of cream lace trim separate the skirt into three additional sections, which adds a layered look to this skirt without adding actual layers. The dress also features a short, puffed sleeve that is decorated with cream trim and gathered around the upper arm with a cream ribbon. The Black and Cream Civil War Dress features a fully-lined interior as well as built-in boning, which is designed to help support and shape your body. This dress also fastens using laces on the back, meaning this dress can be adjusted to fit a wide variety of body types. This dress is pictured with the Civil War Hoop Skirt (MCI-240), sold separately. Also please note that the hat is also not included with the dress nor is it available. The Black and Cream Civil War Dress may call to mind the southern heiresses of sprawling plantations, but at its hear the dress is a renaissance-styled dress that works just as well at any renaissance or medieval-themed event.
