Early Teens Era Summer Dress

From the seller:

Label: none

Featured in this auction is a beautiful cotton tea dress from the 1910s...It has mother of pearl buttons down the center back, elbow length sleeves and many kinds of embellishments in the fabric including cutwork, eyelet, embroidery, crochet, lace and pleating...Additional closeup photos are in the gallery at the top of the listing...It has yellowed perspiration stains and is lightly soiled around the neckline...A good soaking in Oxi-Clean or similar would probably take care of these and brighten it up...Otherwise, it is in very good and wearable condition.

It doesn't have a size label, but fits a size small to medium...These measurements are taken flat with a flexible measuring tape...You have to be smaller than the measurements to allow room for ease:
Shoulder to shoulder: 19 inches
Sleeve length: 16 inches
Bust: 40 inches
Waist: 28 inches
Hip: 54 inches
Length from waist: 37 inches
This is one of several vintage clothing items I have on separate auctions...Please click on the My Auction Gallery button below to see the others...I will gladly combine to save on shipping charges.
