1860's Dress Inspiration

I've started making a toile for an 1860's day dress! I'm using patterns from Jean Hunnisette's book Costume for the Stage and Screen (1800-1909).

I really love this dress! The style is looks like it's very close to the pattern I'm using.

I never realized how much I'm drawn to blue dresses of this era. When I make the real deal it'll have to be blue!
