From Me:


I love these summer dresses. However, it annoys me to no end that far too many people assume anything white must be a wedding dress.  O_o?  This is not a wedding dress but a lovely summer piece.   The bodice is very interesting on it due to the placement of the collar.  It gives the dress a large "u" shaped neckline that is then filled with lace.  My guess is this is a late 1900's early teens piece.
