Vintage 1900s Edwardian Dress Crochet Lace Sleeves And Trim
I've been hoarding this as its so special and lovely. This dress is right from the earliest 1900s. Winter white linen with crochet lace sleeves and trim at the hips and stomach. Crochet lace at the high neck. French seams in a lot of places. I do not believe the buttons up the back are all original, in fact I know a few of them are not, though there are a couple that may be. The hook and eyes are also not al original, but they are all there, so someone has taken care to restore this. The waist is reinforced and trimmed in a soutache-like trim. It is unlined, and there is no label. Small to extra small. I wish it would fit me but alas, no chance.
Excellent vintage condition. Especially given its age. Still very wearable, though should be treated with care of course. There is a pinhole on the bodice and anorher pinhead sized on the skirt. But that's the only ones I could spot and I don't see any smudges or spots at all really. The only thing to really note is that the bottom hem was taken out by a previous owner. I've left it unhemmed and its been finished with a French seam so it can be worn as is. But if you want to hem it to make it shorter, that's, of course, easy enough to do. I'm only even mentioning it because you can see the lines where the old hem was, thigh those may steam and/or iron out, I have not tried. Its in remarkable shape and just so beautiful, and has so much life and love left in it. Very special dress.

Waist: 22" ( though you could shift the hooks and eyes here a bit and get it a bit larger without much problem.
