1860s girls dress in a silk plaid.  Isn’t just so cute!  Short sleeves and a high neckline.  I kind of want one.  It’s like the 1860s t-shirt.  It seems a little counter-intuitive, don’t you think?

What a lovely color yellow, and like the bands on her sleeves.  Also check out the pinked edge of her gown!
