Edwardian day dress


This antique Edwardian dress is made from blue dotted Swiss lawn is fragile.  The silk lining is shattered and shattering but could be worn with an underslip.  The dress features lines of embroidered insertion and lace overlays. The pouched monobosom bodice has a high neckline that fastens down the back with working hooks and eyes, The modesty panel is trimmed across the top with black silk ribbon and net lace.. The cuffs of the long sleeves match the lace & leaf embroidery on the bodice.  The ecru silk trim on the skirt above the black ribbon trim is starting to fray.  The dress has some mild age staining that I have not attempted to remove.
