Ladies 0711-Homestead Dress: Expecting, Camp and Work

Item Last Updated: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:46:08 EST

Camp / Work Dress, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies Skirts, Blouses and Dresses
      This dress is thought of as being a Civil War dress yet it goes from pre Civil War up near the 1870's as people moved more to the west. This is a very loose fitting dress for travel west by wagon etc.

     NOTE: This dress is very full, it is NOT for women that are concerned about a small waist look. It is great for those that do not like a confining dress or are pregnant. By adding a half apron you can give the waist of this dress a more defined appearance.

     This is a camp dress. It's great to wear around camp for cooking, cleaning and chasing children around. It can be made to be plain /simply, yet we do like to add a little trim for contrast and appearance. Still it's nice to even look good, even in camp. Also very good for those that do the out back/ country re-enacting and you don't want to wear a hoop or take a chance on your nice day dresses. Although you can add a hoop and dress it up for evening wear.

     This is gathered at waist or straight cut, drop sleeves and a large (tall) ruffle at bottom. Buttons down front. Can be with straight cut sleeves with piping at wrist for pre war, or full sleeves with cuff band.

   Optional;  With wrist ruffle, straight sleeve, or full with cuff band. Round Peter Pan collar or piped around neckline. Matching tie for waist, are partial waist band added to tie in back.

    Suggest: An apron, a under hoop slip. The long padded bonnet, that is pictured below, is great when out in the sun.

     E-Mail us with color/fabric design interests.

Homestead Dress (1860s-1870s) by Past Patterns. #711, 19th Century

1860s-1870s Homestead Dress
by Past Patterns #711

   We dated this dress to the 1860s because of the fashionably long shoulder line. The princess style, however, is more typical of the 1870s. The 711 is a very comfortable gown and the unaproned waist is suitable for ladies in confinement.

   This pattern is multi-sized 10 through 20. Sizes 10-14 require 6-1/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 16-20 require 7 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.

Ladies Round Dress (Pioneer): Camp and Work

Item Last Updated: Saturday, 14-Feb-2015 00:46:08 EST

Camp / Work Dress, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies Skirts, Blouses and Dresses
    This is  a Civil War dress, yet it is pre Civil War (Late 1850s to 1860s) and goes up into the 1870's as more women moved west.

    Of the two camp/ work dresses, this one is more dressy. This is made with a waist band. Great for those that work around the camp site cooking and/ or chasing children. Also good for those back woods camping re-enacting, where as you don't want to wear your hoop are damage or dirty your fine day dresses. Yet, if you want you can add a hoop and can be ready for evening.

     It's made off the shoulder with piping at the edge and followed further down, piping again. the bodice is lined and boned. Comes with matching or contrast piping on sleeve. Above the breast it's gathered yoke to give full comfort.

     Optional; are a piped (collarless) neckline or round peter pan collar. With full sleeves or cuffs. I recommend cuffs for real wear, due to the fact, that full sleeves tend to get into things, like cooking, fire, etc. Also optional, is with the top being of a solid color and the bottom a print. Note: put in comment field if your plan on wearing a hoop and the size, for correct sizing of bottom of skirt.

    Matching or Contrasting Material Top & Skirt: Both Top and Skirt in the same Material, or contrasting.

    Suggest: bonnet, that is on the other page of camp dress and under hoop slip.

     Measurements: Fill out Measurement Chart.
