* Fabric - Net Lace.

For your consideration, An original dress from The Edwardian Era with Provenance. There are two photographs with the woman who was graduating in the dress. Looks like a college graduation, at least she looks to be about that age!
Top of the gown has a pinnafore look, with the edges coming to points. I wouldn't call it scalloped, I believe scalloped would be more rounded edges. Bottom of skirt matches the top with it ending in points! Top and bottom is delicately embroidered...so very pretty! There is an attached outer skirt that ends in points...somewhat like the hankerschief type. The underskirt that ends with the embroidered points sticks out from underneath the overskirt. The three-quarter length sleeves end with the same points as the overskirt. The woman in the photo is wearing long white gloves with the dress.
Waistline is pidgeon breasted and is slightly raised. The dress is edged with matching silk ribbon. Closure is with snaps in back. Proper length is just above the ankles as shown in the original photos.
In the photos, the woman is holding her graduation diploma. Photos are clear and in very good condition!
Bust - abt 34"
Waist - abt 27"
Hip - Full
Length - abt 55" Shoulder to hem
Sleeve - abt 11" to the cuff/15" to end
Condition -Overall in very good antique condition! I see some minor spots and stains that I had to look for. The top of the dress looks like it has darkened with age a little more than the skirt of the dress. There is a one half inch hole in the net, hidden in the folds of the skirt, and about 3 very small ones.
