Very Late Teens Era Black Silk Net Dress

From the seller:

Beautiful Edwardian Black Lace Over dress

Satin bow and lace snap up front

16 1/2" from shoulder to shoulder

18" from shoulder to waist

29" from waist to hem of skirt including 4" of solid satin at bottom

From Me:

I'm tempted to say this *might* be very early 1920's but I'm thinking it's more WWI era. It's starting on the shape the 1920's dresses will take but it has a lot of the detailing that is more in line with the teens and the waist isn't quite "there" yet.
