A lovely 1910s day dress in a charming navy blue silk, accented with silver and coral beads. With its red-and-white candy striped waistband (hidden by the waist sash when worn), sailor-esque shawl collar, and deep navy hue, this dress calls to mind seaside holidays and boardwalk strolls! Features many beautiful details, such as a wide ribbon waist sash and triple tier detailing on the skirt. This centenarian does have a few cosmetic flaws, but overall looks gorgeous for its age and is holding up nicely. Wonderful piece for your antique clothing collection, or even limited wear. Serious buyers are welcome to convo me with any specific questions!

Condition: Very Good--Good. Structurally this dress is in very good condition, a rarity considering its age and material! There are two small tears (see last photo), however, the fabric seems sturdy overall. There is some minor loss to the beaded elements (again, see photos). There is some overall fading to the fabric; the worst of it is inside the garment (see fourth photo) but in the light you can see some minor variegations. Some discoloration of the underarm area. While this dress does have some cosmetic flaws, it displays beautifully and is stable enough for wear within reason (i.e., fine for a tea party or historic fashion show, but it probably wouldn't survive a night out dancing). Because the fading hints at unstable dyes, I would strongly caution the new owner against any kind of washing or dry cleaning, please!
