The lace is joined by linen strips with beige and black embroidered dots. The lace forms most of the front and back of the jacket, plus a deep yoke on the skirt. The skirt is pleated below the yoke and has a train. The jacket is loose fitting without a front closure – we pinned it closed with a small cameo of the photos. The shoulder line is wide with full, elbow length pleated sleeves. There would have been a coordinating bodice that hooked to the skirt at the center back.The skirt closes with hooks and bar at the back.

1900s Vintage Edwardian Ivory Net and Silk Gown Size M

This early c. 1905 romantic soft net dress may well have been a wedding dress, but not necessarily. White was awfully popular for day wear. This is a 3-piece set. There is a china silk lined net bodice, a china silk petticoat and a net skirt. The black waist band is a simple ribbon tied on so you can see how it would look with a sash. This is a very soft and lightweight dress. The bodice is un-boned with lots of tucks and lace insertion and a button back closure. The skirt is full with many tucks to shape it from the waist to hip and is finished with lace trimmed ruffles at the hem, with more lace insertion. There is a small train, but the mannequin is too tall to show it to effect. The petticoat is a very light china silk. We show this over an additional cotton petticoat for volume. The skirt closes with hooks and bars at center back.

Label: none

The back-button placket is the original silk and is worn. There is some rust discoloration at the CB skirt hooks. There are 3 dart type repairs on the petticoat at CB.

Such a pretty hat! This one in copper toned silk satin with pale gold velvet band and edge. The soft crown is surrounded by two ones of ostrich feathers - a matching pale gold and a true blue.
