Edwardian sheer spring dress

From the seller:

Antique EDWARDIAN Victorian DRESS Gown! Elaborately Decorated with SOUTACHE Cord on front Bodice, Waist, Cuffs, and Skirt front, ECRU Tan Color, Gauzy see thru Fabric. There are holes through out, good for pattern or study, Sold as is! Measures, Bust 34", Waist 24", Hips 34", Arms from undrearm to cuff 14 1/2", Length from top back to bottom 57".

From Me:

The high neck is interesting since those went out of vogue around the time this style front was in. Some religious groups kept the high neck styles around for longer -to the point in some ultra conservative groups they still wear them- but I'm not sure it's that or if it's just a hodge podge of the transition into the new style.
