I made this dress for our local Civil War reenactment in Yale, Oklahoma. Much of this dress was sewn by hand.
100% cotton material, black silk-like (polyester from stash) lining on lower sleeves, muslin lining for skirt, cotton print lining for bodice, black lace and black satin ribbon for trim. The pattern is Simplicity 3727.
