Drool Worthy Edwardian Summer Dress

From the seller:

Absolutely stunning ,romantic,sweet afternoon Art Nouveau dress, could

easily have been worn as a wedding dress.

This dress has a high waist,but not quite a empire waist.

The cummerbund featured, did not come with this dress,but a similar

was surely worn or it was worn with a wide ribbon.

Cummerbund is not included in auction.It will be sold separately.

The top part has many fine sewn pleats.

The sleeves are cut fairly full with lace inserted and several fine

more narrow lace pieces.

The skirt part has a soft peplum overskirt with embroidered wedding wreaths.

The hem of the peplum has squared off scallops, the details of this dress is

so amazing.

The bolero is cut a little more loose ,and is entirely made of thin strips

of linen and very fine lace. The bolero`s two front panels are a little longer

and dip down in front.
