Black Edwardian Tea Dress

From the seller:

Here we have a lovely Victorian mourning gown from the late 1800's. It is made entirely of silk lace and mesh with a ribbon cinched waist. Fastens up the back with hook and eye closures. The back is shown unfastened because it is too small for the dress form. This dress is in remarkably good condition and has only one spot of damage at the neck which is about the size of a small pea. Clean with no stains or strong odors.

bust - 32"
waist - 25"
hip - 44"
length - 52"

From Me:

So not from the "1800's". And, thereby, not Victorian. We have a GORGEOUS Edwardian gown in black that is perfect for drinking lemonade on the porch. I doubt it's for mourning either given the lace and overall appearance. Although white was the common color for this style, it was not the only color.
