The majority of my ancestors were farmers in the 1870s so I hope the ladies wore something a tad more practical while milking cows and baking cornbread :) #genealogy #familytree #clothing
Mine too Anne!
I have seen a picture of my great grandmother in a dress almost identical to this
This dress would be for certain special occasions, I am sure that alot of women had a dress like this, in the back of their closet
I will bet this is either a special occassion dress or a Sunday Dress. Sunday and Special occassions usually called for a different kind of dress than that worn every day.
