Late Edwardian/ WWI era lace gown

From the seller:

 This lovely lace and silk satin dress is tiered in lace with a sheer net underskirt. She fastens down the back with tiny snaps and hook & eye fasteners. She is accented with a silk cummerbund and each of the three lace tiers has a silk satin border.  She is 42" long, sleeves are 12" long, she will fit a 30-32" bust, 24" waist, and 36" hips. Measurements were taken in the relaxed state and not stretched. There is a light brownish stain on bottom tier, very inconspicuous, I nearly missed it. There is no shattering of the silk, large tears or holes, or musty odors. The lace is exquisite! She is in actually very good condition for a lady of her advanced years. Sold as found.

From Me: 

So this is what to do with old lace curtains! :-)   I think this is late teens/early 20's based on the tiers.


  1. I don't suppose this item is for sale? If so, could you email Thanks!

    1. Hi! I have no idea if it's for sale or not anymore. I post items I find through various sites (ebay, etsy, artfire, ect) that are truly vintage. Most posts follow the same basic format; a bunch of pictures and then a "From the seller" followed by the "From me". The "from the seller" always links back to the auction/store I found the item at. You can click the link to see if the item sold or not and, if not, if the seller still has it. Warning, there is a huge range in prices when it comes to the items I post.
