Gorgeous Edwardian tea dress from the 1910's, constructed of cotton gauze in creamy ivory.
Dress features pin tucks, padded embroidery and openwork crochet lace.
Fitted bodice with a beautiful embroidered flower garland surrounded by meandering flower vines; gathered waist accented with openwork crochet.
Elbow-length dolman sleeves have horizontal knife pleats and pin tucks (pattern is repeated at sides of skirt near hips); mother of pearl buttons at the cuffs.
Skirt has the same embroidered floral pattern as the bodice; openwork crochet down to the first horizontal pleat.
Mother of pearl/shell closures at back of dress.
Fabric is sheer and will require a slip.
Best fits a Small. Measurements are taken flat, doubled where appropriate. These are garment measurements so be sure to allow room for movement.
Excellent condition. A few minor stains, more prominent stain to back of skirt bottom; some small snags; tiny pulls to gauze at crochet seams; light soiling to the crochet at neck, which may likely resolve with a professional cleaning.
