Antique 1910's Edwardian Rare Open Back Dress | Soft White Cotton Lawn with Eyelet & Venetian Lace | Size XS
This antique 1910s dress is very elaborate and unique in detail. Made of buttery soft and very slightly sheer white cotton lawn fabric, with gorgeous embroidered eyelet floral lace and immaculate Venetian lace in all the right places. This sweetly innocent beauty has a modest high square neck and long sleeves cuffed and outlined in Venetian lace. This little tea dress has a completely open back outlined in lace, making this a truly different piece from the era. A fitted waist and eye-hook closure in the back, with a gathered waist and wide skirt falling below the knee to about mid-calf (depending on height). This exquisite dress is hemmed in complimentary lace with a scalloped edge. A lovely lingerie dress that can be worn formally or casually. Can be worn with a slip or camisole but looks absolutely enchanting with the back open as well.
CONDITION - Excellent: Completely sturdy for wear! There is one light brownish spot on the back-right, lower part of the skirt. Dress has been soaked and ironed. One metal hook missing and replaced with a cord loop for closure. Directly above is a repair made to a small rip, completely hidden when worn.
