This is an exquisite, stunning Edwardian cotton batiste lawn dress that likely would have been worn for a special occasion like graduation. It features a flouncy ruffle collar, with a circular embroidery trim. The bodice is otherwise plain, and closes in the front with a multi-snap and hook and eye closure down to the skirt and across at the waist. The skirt has beautiful lace and embroidered sections throughout and falls down to the ankle. This truly a special piece that would make a beautiful bridal dress!
CONDITION: Overall excellent, the construction is very good, the cotton is crisp white for the most part. There is a dark brown stain at the end of the left side of the collar and there are various small brown spots and stains on the dress, but they are very small and scattered. The side skirts have been photographed to show some of the light stains. The underarm of right arm has the seam exposed to the outside in one small section.
