Ethereal & ghostly 1910s Edwardian lawn dress that was created for a 1919 wedding. Just divine in its detailing: sailor-style middy collar, dripping in delicate lace, long sleeves with exaggerated cuffs, a defined waist and substantial hem. Pair with your favorite mourning beads to haunt your local graveyard or wear down the aisle for your Mr. Addams. Unlined, sheer, snaps at front & waist. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more information.
Please note this garment has a "tongue and groove" style (see last photo), meaning there are snaps all down the right side of the bust and along the left side of the waist. To get this garment on, you'll have to unsnap them all and pull over your head, so leave a little wiggle room!
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 13 inches →bust: 34 inches →waist: 26 inches →hips: free →length: 50 inches →sleeve length: 21 inches + cuff →cuff circumference: 8.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Small
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. It was soaked for quite a number of days to remove all its age staining, and everything visible when worn is gone and the garment looks pristine. There are a few small flaws on the underside of the waistband, including two small holes and some small spots of discoloration. Again, not noticeable when worn due to outer waistband. The snaps look like they were recently replaced. 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.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Feels like a very fine cotton lawn. Hand wash delicately.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
