Early 1900's Summer Gown

From the seller:

A romantic 1890-1900 white batiste cotton two piece dress. The bodice has a lace yoke and wide bertha style collar that is trimmed with ivory satin lace. The bodice is unlined and has a back hook and eye and button closure. The skirt is trimmed with row upon row of ivory satin ribbon. It has a long back train. The dress is being displayed over a petticoat that is not included. The dress is in good and sturdy condition. The sleeves have a couple of pea size holes, small period mends and one 2 inch period mend on one sleeve. The skirt has one dime size hole, a couple of small period mends near the waist band and a 4 inch period mend on the back train area. A very pretty display dress. Bust 35 Waist 27 Front skirt length 39 back length 49.

From Me:

Although the seller claims 1890's, the sleeves are actually early 1900's. This style was very popular around 1903.
