CONDITION: Very good antique condition. This garment came to me pretty age-stained, like a lot of Edwardian cottons, but it soaked in RetroClean for a good day. It still holds a little bit of color and is more of a tea-stained white, but I really liked how it looked on this piece and didn't soak further. I think another day or two in RetroClean would give you that bright white if it's what you're after! There's one darker area on the shoulder; see photos. This piece is also a little more delicate than most Edwardian whites; it's a very thin, fine cotton, so I think it should be treated gently. I made seam separation repair and looks like I wasn't the first. There are some pulled threads and loss to the shirring as well. Overall, gorgeous piece! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
