Edwardian Lace Dress

From the seller:

An exquisite 1912 Edwardian ecru Irish and net lace tea dress.  The dress is from a wealthy CT. estate.  The name of the original owner will be provided to the winning bidder.  As can be seen by this dress and the other dresses from her wardrobe she was a woman of high style.  The dress is completely lined with a layer of ecru net lace that is embroidered with circles.  The bodice is trimmed with a wide band of Irish lace.  The neckline is trimmed with an insert of Duchesse lace.  The double sleeves are trimmed with lace and embroidery.  The lower edge of the skirt is decorated with Irish lace and embroidery.  The dress has a back hook and loop closure.  The waist sash is not included.  The dress is in very good condition.  It has not been cleaned so there is some minor age discoloration on one side of the skirt.  There are a few pea size holes, mostly on the inside net lining and a few small period mends on the outer parts of the skirt.  Bust 34 Waist 24 Skirt length  39.
