This Edwardian, Titanic Era tailored gown, c 1915, is a classic example of an early day dress, originally made for “The New Woman”. The bustle had disappeared, things were loosening up a bit! Ivory wool faille day bodice, in tone on tone; narrow stripes, with standing embroidered collar. Pleated open weave tulle beneath collar gives way to silk passimenterie. Collar and front of bodice edged in silk braided trim. Four silk and celluloid buttons sewn on either side of braiding, with stitched down braided loops. (These look like a buttonhole, but they are merely for design – these buttons are non functioning). Pleated pattern with tulle, trim and buttons repeated on skirt, sleeves, and back (see photos). Silk satin trim at waistline and sleeve cuffs. Empire waistline, nipped and tucked at waist. Hooks up back with 16 hooks and eyes. Tiered sleeves are ¾ length. Seven-gore skirt, flared soft bustle design. Sewn in underarm shields.

Condition: Fair. Still wearable, after 100 years, and priced accordingly. Was used for a professional photography shoot, which is just one of many ways it can still be used today. (Photos available if you would like please convo with email).

There are issues, which are apparent, but it is still an excellent piece for film, design, theatre or restoration. Issues include: tiny moth holes, strewn about, mostly in front towards bottom. Stain on front of bodice. Small spots. Shredding of plaquette beneath hooks and eyes, at back (does not show when worn). A couple of loose hooks and eyes a dirt mark along inside hemline, and faint underarm stains. We have not attempted to clean this item. We recommend professional cleaning. Sold as-is.

Sizing: bust 36”; waist 26”; hips 40”; bodice length 14"; sleeve length 18.5"; back across mid-shoulders 15”; total length 57" top of shoulder to bottom hem, back.

NOTE: Please rely on the item's actual measurements, not the original size, where noted. Vintage garment and shoe sizes typically run smaller than modern sizes. So, please take your own measurements to assure proper fi.

Thanks!

Keep it real, keep it green, keep it fun!
