How to order #806 Lowell Mill Dress.

#806 Lowell Mill Dress. $35.00 (US funds)

According to family records, this dress was worn by Mary Gregg Butler. The original appears to have been made in the late 1820s or early 1830s when the sleeves were full. After the full sleeve fell from favor around 1836, the sleeves on the dress were banded down. The pelerine capelet is worn with the full sleeves.

The original fabric on the dress with the banded-down sleeves is a fine white cotton print with red, blue and brown flowers, leaves and vines. The fabric for the full-sleeved dress is a large poinsettia with morning trumpet flowers and large broad leaves. See color illustration.

This pattern is multi-sized 8 through 26, in B, C, and D cups. Sizes 8-14 require 7-1/4 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 16-20 require 7-3/4 Yds; sizes 22-26 require 9-1/2 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.
