Exquisite Edwardian dress, possibly WW1 era, judging by its sailor's collar. The dress is made of fine and airy white cotton net covered with hand-made lace. Tiny crochet balls embellish the sailor's collar, bodice and angular elbow tips of the sleeves. The skirt has peplum: front sides and back. Back of the skirt is four inches longer.
Front closure (see photo #3). The color is soft white. There are no holes, no discoloration.
Two or three tiny links are broken under the collar, close to the shoulder seam, not visible. Upon close examination I found two small period repairs on the skirt back bottom: a few extra leaves are covering minor net disconnections, not noticeable (photo #7 skirt bottom). One or two broken links on the skirt back. The silk sash on the first photo is not original to the dress, not included.The dress was dry-cleaned and is ready to be worn. Length - 48" (front); 52" (back).
Underarm to underarm in front - 19. FOR THOSE PURCHASING VINTAGE AND/OR PREOWNED ITEMS.
