Amazing antique summer dress circa 1890's. This gorgeous lace dress can be worn as a wedding gown as the back is fuller and a bit longer than the front and buttons with teeny embroidered work buttons and hooks down the back.

The dress is sheer with openwork lace down the front center, and the sleeves are openwork lace that come to a point on the center of the hand. It has a high neck net collar and lace ruffles on the side of the bodice at shoulders. Sleeves are puffed a bit at shoulders.

Another garment like a slip will be needed to wear underneath as it is sheer and dainty. Dress will come with necklace pictured: it is a 70's style cameo with aged patina, not a real expensive cameo but lovely with this dress!

It is a gorgeous historical delicate completely wearable piece with just a few condition issues: there have been small repairs in the lace over the years as expected in a dress over 100 years old. There is one repair near the bottom hem in back that is about a 4" straight seam, does not detract as it is right near a lace border and disappears into the fold of the skirt. There are small breaks in thread in some of the lace and netting: nothing major. There are a few tiny spot marks near hem and right above the lace that are minimal . The collar has a trim piece at top that may not be original, not quite sure as it looks to be older but I have never seen this type of corded trim on a dress like this. Either way it looks lovely so not really a flaw, just a point to note.

Though this dress has several issues, none are major, and can only be noticed on close inspection.
