This was acquired from an estate of a former teacher from New England. We have a couple dresses from her estate with this same style. She became a teacher at 18 years old and this indicative in these dresses as this shows in the "junior" styling of these garments.

This lovely dress circa 1915-1916 when the hemline was at the highest ever in history at that time.

This well made garment is fashioned from baby blue and white heavy cotton with red and white embroidered details.

This features a paneled bodice and high waist trimmed at the front with red buttons. The short sleeves and high waistline are edged with red embroidered scallops and contacting white pique trim.

Skirt is made with inverted panels extending from waist to hem. This has an "A" line silhouette. Dress fastens down the front on the inside with mother of pearl buttons on a blue placket and hooks at the waist.

Please note that some photos are done with flash in order to show detailing.

Items are sent to you in a ready to wear condition. "Estate fresh" garments are never in ready to wear condition so that means we take the extra time/care to either carefully launder and iron our items, steam, press or have them dry cleaned before sending.
The only garments that we do not clean are deadstock/new old stock garments that have not been worn. Collectors prefer these in "Estate fresh" condition. However, if you purchase a deadstock item from us and would prefer it cleaned before sending out, just let us know. There is no charge for this...just request this.
We NEVER use items such as Febreeze or Dryel as those are not cleaning agents. They are only used to mask odors and will leave dirt and residue in your vintage garment.
