The Civil War (1861 – 1865)In general, the correct “profile” for the period featured a very full floor-length skirt (it would be shorter for very young ladies), and a closely-fitted bodice. The sleeves were often very full, and might have a bell shape or be very full at the sleeve head. The shoulder seam was typically dropped slightly down from the shoulder, and the waist was often just a bit above what we would consider a natural waistline.
