Antique Victorian Edwardian Dress Handmade Cotton Lawn Lace Tea Wedding Bridal For Sale
For sale, an authentic Victorian/Edwardian cotton lawn dress with beautifully detailed pin tucking and lace inserts. The entire upper bodice has yards and yards of lace. It is constructed to allow for a fuller bustline and a narrow waist. The style has long, mutton sleeves, a full length front panel, and a large ruffled flounce with a 106" sweep at the hem. The bust, waist and hip measurements for this dress are taken with the garment laid flat and then doubled. Bust (underarm to underarm) 35"; waist 23"; hips 46". Shoulder to underbust 11"; shoulder to shoulder 16"; waist to hem 40"; and shoulder to sleeve cuff 17". The condition is very good with the following notes: there is light spotting as shown in photos 10 & 11 that may come out with a good soak. There are two small holes in fabric on the back of left sleeve shown in photo 12. There are a few small places where the stitching didn't catch the lace; that was in the making of the dress. The back is secured with hooks and hand-made loops. It is a beautiful dress and although it doesn't quite fit my mannequin, it is sure to flatter someone with figure to fit the dress. Thanks for looking and good luck.
