The nice thing about this dress is the versatility of it. Technically, it is 1860's. However, depending on what type of hoops and underskirts I wear with it, I don't look that out of place in other time periods. I used Simplicity pattern 2881 for this dress, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice Civil War era dress to make. Happy sewing!
