Ethereal and ghostly 1910s Edwardian whitework gown featuring a high neckline crafted out of lace and too many beautiful details to count. From the open whitework on the bust to the trim appliques, from the sheer lace inserts on the skirt to the floral embroidery, this dress is full of all the details we cherish from this era. Featuring three-quarter-length sleeves, a fitted waist and fabric-covered buttons adorning the back, this gown is perfect for an ethereal bride or a ghostly haunting. Unlined, sheer, buttons at back and hook & eyes at neck. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more information.
ESTIMATED SIZE: XXX-Small; best suited for a modern corseted figure.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition with a few things to note. The collar had wire stands in it, but they were completely rusted. I've removed them, but there's a few small spots I couldn't get out as a result of the rust. I've darned two moth holes at the right shoulder and one just above the waist. There's a tiny one on the bottom of the skirt I've left, as it should be hidden with a slip. I've also made a repair to the left underarm; it's not noticeable when worn, but is no longer quite as perfect as the right. Overall, this is a gorgeous, rare piece that's getting harder and harder to find, and it presents beautifully. 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. Made of cotton. Hand wash or dry clean.
