Antique Edwardian 1910's Dress | Pale Baby Blue & White Striped Cotton with Black Velvet Ribbon | Size XS
Antique 1910s Edwardian dress made of a semi-sheer, lightweight cotton with pale baby blue and white stripes which give a nice touch to a subtle tea gown. Prim and proper, with a flattering narrow shoulder and high neck, fitted through the waist. A lace framed upper chest and ruffled 3/4 sleeve add a sweetly feminine touch, with black velvet ribbons woven throughout. This lovely little dress has an ankle-length skirt with a flounce hem edged in lace, closing up the spine with button-snaps. Perfect for period-specific enthusiasts while still being perfectly acceptable for modern style.
Excellent: Hand washed and steamed, both cotton and lace are strong and durable for wear. The lace insert has been re-tacked in a few areas which is not noticeable. A few very faint marks that I almost didn't catch but they showed under my photography lighting. Underarms are a bit whiter than the rest of the gown from a baking soda underarm treatment (my fault). A cluster of small holes at the lower side of the skirt. I believe that this dress originally had eye-hook closure and they were later replaced with snaps.
