This dress would have been worn in the garden at home or around the house. It is a fairly simple dress, and probably belonged to a young lady judging by the size. Traditionally, one would wear a few layers of cotton undergarments underneath such as pantaloons, slips, and an underskirt as well as a corset and corset cover. Today, unless you are doing historical re-enactment or like to dress in the period, it is easy to wear with a plain slip underneath for a bohemian style. Dress it up with a cute belt and sandals.
