Lovely Edwardian Summer Dress

From the seller:

This antique Edwardian era white lace lawn batiste pink floral embroidered tea dress dates from 1910. It is made of a sheer fine white cotton batiste lawn fabric, with pink floral raised padded satin stitch embroidery, eyelet cut work, crochet and valenciennes French bobbin lace trim inserts. This lovely lace long floor length dress has a high collar neckline, draping shoulder overlay top, with a pouter pigeon front, long sleeves with flared lace ruffle drawstring cuffs, a fitted waistband and a draping back skirt. It is unlined and has hook & eye closures down the back. The dress measures 60 inches long, with 40 inch hips, a 28 inch waist, 36 inch bust, 14 inch back and 23 inch long sleeves. It is in excellent clean wearable condition. This is a wonderful piece of romantically feminine Edwardian antique textile art which could be worn for an afternoon garden tea party, wedding gown or graduation dress!

From Me:

I love the pink details on this lovely summer dress.  It's in a very wearable size as well!
