The first piece of clothing from the Greene Collection that we are highlighting is a gorgeous White Cotton Dress with Tassel Ties, 1815.
This dress is entirely hand stitched fine white cotton. It has a stomacher front opening with a very high waist and long tubular sleeves and a small collar. The skirt is gored and the plied string ties with tassels fasten in the front. It has domed Dorset buttons which are a masterpiece themselves!
This dress is from an Interlaken antique dealer. There are many pieces from this dealer in the collection and they all came from the same attic!
