Black Edwardian Dinner Gown

From the seller:

Late 1800's through early 1900's two-piece evening gown is made out of black silk with elegant sequined and beaded lace appliques. Blouson bodice has elbow-length sleeves with sequined cuffs, ornate lace around round neckline, and center back hook and eye closures. A-line skirt is floor-length, has vertical pintucked bands that are interrupted at varied intervals with heavily sequined appliques, wide pleated ruffle at hem that forms a train in the back, and center back hook and eye closures. Both pieces are lined.

CONDITION: Excellent with some areas in the netting on the bodice that need to be stabilized. There is one tear in the bodice lining. 12" of additional black fabric was added to the bodice to allow for it to be easily tucked in. Due to the delicate nature of this garment, it was not cleaned. Additional photographs available upon request.
