A strikingly beautiful 1910s Edwardian era dress! Sheer white cotton lawn, with a fitted bodice, looser in the bust to allow for the silhouette offered by the S bend corsets of the times. Gorgeous floral embroidery across the bodice with a crocheted neckline and waist. This beautiful dress has narrow sleeves falling to just above the elbow, with crocheted lace inserts and a wide tucked shoulder. A very sweet peplum edged in lace to flatter the curves falls from the waist to give a very feminine shape, especially in the hip and bum regions. With a long slightly A line skirt completely adorned in sheer eyelet lace inserts and embroidery, and stunning pin-tuck detail. The back of this gown is just as lovely as the front, with button down closure and a lower neckline to show a subtle yet sexy amount of skin, with little embroidered flower appliques for added flair. This very special dress could easily be worn as a wedding dress, or even a less formal day dress. Very versatile and a superb choice for collectors of the Belle Epoque era!
CONDITION - Excellent: no stains or rips, I found one small pinhole on the peplum, and one nip to the lace at the very top of the neckline. Very easy mends, though these flaws do not distract from the beauty of this dress at all!
