Description

Antique, Edwardian white cotton batiste dress has dropped shoulders, elaborately pieced lace inserts, all over tucked fabric at the bodice & collar, half length sleeves with lace bands & ruffled trim & closes at the back with lots of tiny hooks & eyes. The fabric is quite sheer, you will need to wear a slip or petticoat beneath. The dress is photographed over a half petticoat in photo 2. No labels, custom made – 1900s. Size – Small to Medium Possible to enlarge the waist if you can sew. Bust 86-91 cm (34-36) Waist 61 cm (24) Hips 91-96 cm (36-38″) Shoulder to waist 39 cm (15.5″) Length 142 cm (142 cm (56″) Good condition. The waistband is not original & modern fabric has been used, I suspect in an abandoned attempt to enlarge it. I have reattached the skirt to the waistband but have had to take two pleats in the back of the band. You could successfully enlarge the waist by detaching the skirt, letting out the pleats in the band, & letting out some of the fullness of the skirt before reattaching. However, completely wearable at the size described as it is. A panel at the front hip of the skirt has also been replaced by a previous owner, see photo. There are several small holes, three in the front of the skirt, as shown. These would not be noticeable with a white slip beneath. A number of mends in the lace, not noticeable.
