Civil War Wrappers

A wrapper was a front-closing, expandable gown that you used while doing housework, or to cover your undergarments while you were getting ready for the day. Pregnant ladies also favored them since they expanded at the back to "grow" with your figure. Wrappers weren't usually seen by the general public, which is a shame because ladies often used wild and exciting designs and colors on them!
