Cotton muslin dress, 1806, embroidered with delicate floral sprigs. The front bodice of dress has two straps to attach to shoulders. The back extends to the front and hooks under the bustline. The short sleeves originally had a tiny drawstring to pull them into little puffs. Sarah Elizabeth Ellison wore this dress when she married James Adger in Winnsboro, SC in 1806.
