Vintage Victorian or Early Edwardian white cotton voile full length gown. Three quarter length sleeves, high boned neck, buttons up the back with tiny engraved mother of pearl buttons. The work on this dress is exquisite! The fabric is composed of sections of embroidered cotton voile and lace with delicate ladder stitching. 1.5 inch wide waistband. No label or maker listed.
This dress is very small and did not quite fit my model and is not fastened in the back.
Additional photos are available upon request! Just ask!

Silhouette: High neck Victorian tea dress. Button back.
Material: Cotton voile
Condition: Considering the age of the dress the condition is amazing! all original buttons no tears in the lace. The dress has a few flaws. The cotton voile is very thin in about 2 areas and have a few small holes about the size of a pencil eraser. There is one tear in the skirt which I have stabilized with white silk organza as a temporary fix which can be seen in the last photo. There was some areas of seam separation on the front of the gown which was repaired with cotton thread.
