Edwardian dress of delicate cotton lawn with tiny black and white stripes, and soft ecru cotton lace. Elbow-length sleeves edged in lace. Lots of lace insets backed with soft tulle net, vertical pintucks at the hips, horizontal pleats at the hem, and the usual attention to detail you see in clothes of the Edwardian era -- 1901-1911.
Light as air and a pleasure to wear. Unlined. You'll need a slip (petticoats preferred!). From my own collection, purchased from a reputable dealer who acquired it from a collector of antique clothing. I've reused some of her photos with permission.
Fiber/Care: no tags, but all cotton, hand washable
Condition: in the past the buttonhole side of the back placket was turned under and stitched down, and hooks&eyes installed. the buttons remain in place, but the bodice buttonholes are no longer serviceable (or visible). the dress closes with the hooks&eyes to the waist, and the original buttons below. no other flaws to note. sturdy and quite wearable.
*This dress is as fresh and clean as a 100+ year old garment can possibly be. It is ready to wear. Read about our cleaning process here.*
