10s House Dress in Cotton Calico

Sorry, this item has sold.

This Titanic era house dress is what was worn at home in the 1910s if you did not live at Downton Abbey! Cotton calico in a black and white on gray print featuring tiny hearts. Eight-button placket with hand-stitched buttonholes. Collar with hand blanket-stitching trim. Slightly raised set-in waistband is finished inside and out. Long sleeves have single-snap cuffs. White linen trims the cuffs, collar, and roomy patch pockets. Dress is gathered above and below the waistband, with extra fullness and length in back. A particularly lovely example of increasingly hard-to-find everyday clothing from the 1910s.

Labels: none -- home sewn with care and attention to detail

Fiber/Care: unmarked, cotton and linen, washable

Condition: strong, sturdy and completely wearable. as would be expected, there are few minor glitches - there's a small "bite" taken out of the back hem, with a few scattered holes (none larger than a pencil eraser) and a cluster of small rust stains just above. there's a some wear and tear (one is repaired, the top one is not) to the buttonholes, and a small vertical tear near the cuff of the left sleeve. all are repairable, if desired.

*This house dress is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
