Gorgeous, early 1900s Edwardian dress, or wedding dress. White cotton with Broderie Anglais whitework and embroidered organdy.
Bloused bodice with net lace collar; 3/4 length sleeves have alternating bands of net lace with bands of whitework.
Skirt has three layers with an attached ruffle over the bottom layer, all at different lengths with different laces. Bottom skirt has a stiffer, under ruffle to provide fullness. The layers give the dress a striking appearance but makes the dress rather heavy towards the bottom.
Etched shell buttons at the back of the bodice, 3 hook/eye closures with a concealed, larger shell button at the waist, and snaps down from the waist.
Fabric is sound and this is totally wearable. This dress is freshly clean and ready to wear!
Best fits a XXS. Measurements are taken flat, doubled where appropriate:
Sleeves 14" from shoulder
*dress has an extremely small waist as it was originally worn with a corset.
Excellent condition! A few tiny rust spots from the hook and eye closures which aren't so visible when the closures are hooked; very faint discoloration to the back of neck. Bottom skirt layer has some wear spots/small tears and about a 3" mend at the belly area, but these don't show due to the over layers. Some of the scalloping at the bottom layer skirt/hemline is damaged/missing - there is a 4" long section and a 12" long section but again, these are not obvious unless you look for them.
