Nice, Simple Teen's Era Day Dress

From the seller:
A lovely original circa 1913 lady's sheer white window pane woven muslin and embroidered dot one piece dress with a lace trimmed collar, a fashionable high waist, shell buttons to the front closure, vertical pleat accents to the bodice, gathered ruffled cuffs, and pin tuck pleat accents above the hem. Shown with necklaces and a waist belt that are not included. 17" from shoulder to shoulder, a 36"bust, 28" waist and 50" from shoulder to front hem. In good clean sound condition, with a few pin dot age flaws, some minor light soiling at the hem, a few small holes in the sleeves, and a bit of perspiration color to the collar crease. A very pretty Edwardian era day dress

From Me:

Lady Sybil. I think. I just love that it's a wearable size!


  1. is this material lawn? I think I would love to make one like this .. but where to get the material ??

    1. As the seller says, it's most likely a window pane muslin. A quick google search using the terms "window pane sheer cotton" came up with several promising results. However, you won't find an exact match given that this is an antique. :-)
