Size 4 Edwardian Dress - 1900s Turn of Century White Cotton Afternoon Gown - Pigeon Breasted & Full Skirt - Fine Tucks and Lace - Waist 25

$ 149.99

1900s Edwardian dress is an authentic antique gown in fair condition, best for display, portraiture, or restoration. It's a truly picturesque silhouette with a Gibson Girl's appeal to its pigeon breasted bodice, meticulous tucks & lace, and sweeping full skirt. There are V-point wrists with lace trim, single broad pleats at the shoulders, and interior twill cotton "suspenders" built into the bodice to ensure a correct fit. The graceful effect finishes with two rich tiered gathers at the floor-length hem. A beautiful turn-of-the-century find!
