ANTIQUE VICTORIAN / EDWARDIAN ERA DRESS~SILK, OLD RAYON~FINE NET LACE TRIM
- Source: eBay
For consideration, I have listed this antique, Victorian/Edwardian era dress. The style is just stunning! The fabric I believe to be a cotton/old rayon blend, ivory/champagne color. It is sheer and has a nice billowy drape. The navy blue lapels are a brushed silk satin. A delicate and fine net lace ruffling trims the neckline, lapels and sleeve ends. The many covered buttons give it lots of detail! Blouson bodice. The side detail seen in photos 1,2 and 8 are repeated in the back on the opposite side. Nice!This dress is in great condition for its era, with minimal age related wear. Some dust soilage and a few tiny rust specks. Listed for wear , display, pattern study, or salvage fabrics and trims for authentic era dolls clothing. Near museum quality. Across shoulder area ( no seams as sleeves are connected),approximately 16"---Across top, sleeve end to sleeve end, 41" ( that includes lace)---Across at waistline, 13" ( 26" around),---Length, 1 1/2 yards ( with a 3" hem that could be let out for added length).
