This marvelous dress was rescued recently, having lived a long and fanciful life! It was last worn in 1976 as a costume for the Bicentennial. All parts are original early 1900s with exception of sheeting tier at hem. I believe this was added in the 70s to make the dress wearable. Picture three shows how the attached sheeting is cut diagonally at back to complete the dress. Added sheeting tier is a brighter white than sheer cotton dress.

The antique dress has hidden placket at button up back. There are hook and eye closures below waist. Dress is lovely with pin-tucking on bodice and 3/4 sleeves. Open lace is in very nice condition over bodice with a minor pinhole. There are minor holes to plain skirting of dress. Other issues are two tears to open lace on lowest lace tier and stress wear to sleeve fabric hidden by lace overlay at top. All horizontal tears at hem could be mended if you wish. The largest is 1 3/4" horizontal tear. Hole in back lace is close to waist closure. By wearing with underskirt or slip, any flaws would be much less noticed. Lace flaws are repairable.

I have not tried to clean this garment due to its fragile nature. Please convo for additional pictures or concerns about dress condition. She's still lovely, just needs a bit of TLC! Who wouldn't at the century mark? :)
