Beautiful, Edwardian tea dress of sheer, cotton lawn fabric in creamy antique white, with embroidery and Schiffli lace.
Bloused bodice with net lace at the collar has an attached, apron style overlay at the shoulders. Apron overlay acts as a vertical sash at the back; hooks to waist at back.
Sleeves have pintucks with lace; Empire waist slightly gathered with pintucks.
Skirt has horizontal gathers; finished at the bottom with matching lace.
Hook/eye closures at the back; fabric is sheer and will require a slip.
Best fits an XS. Measurements are taken flat, doubled where appropriate. These are garment measurements so be sure to allow room for movement.
Empire Waist 26"
Natural Waist 32"
Amazing condition! Totally wearable, with reasonable care. Some discoloration to the underarms; tiny mend to inside at waist; tiny mend to skirt near left side; minor stain at the back with light wear; some oxidation to hook and eye closures; light soiling to the inside neck, which will most likely resolve with a cleaning.
