A museum worthy piece, this stunning antique Edwardian era gown is like a puff pastry in dress form! Made from lustrous cream silk taffeta, it features a ruched skirt with lovely crinkled pick-ups throughout, and it's trimmed with a wide embroidered net lace across the bottom. The bodice features the same embroidered lace with tiny pink, blue and light green flowers, and it has a wide cummerbund like waist panel that's pleated to the centre back and closes with hooks and eyes. The bust has two sheer chiffon panels that turn into long ties at the back, one of which has a beaded tassel at the end to weigh it down in place. The sleeves are made from the silk taffeta, ruched to secure them in place as almost straps, they are very short. Then they are overlayed with romantic, gathered sheer chiffon, that reveals the shoulders and falls closer to the elbow. The dress is lined in netting and features a thick cotton waistband inside and a series of snaps to close it down the centre back seam.

This was likely for a girl as it is very small.

COLOR: Ivory, Beige, Green, Blue and Pink Embroidery

MATERIAL: 100% Silk Taffeta, Silk Chiffon, Netting

CONDITION: Fair condition overall, but generally good for its age. There are stains throughout and some discolouration. The beaded tassel is missing from the right side of the back. The construction is sound, although it would be best suited for display. There is a tear in the silk from the seam below the last snap of the centre back seam. There is some discolouration under the arms on the taffeta sleeves.
