Embroidered Edwardian Tea Dress

From the seller:

This beautiful Edwardian tea drews is made from a gray net and is embroidered with blue and white flowers. It has a lining layer of plain tulle and you will need a slip for it. It hooks down the back, there's a panel that comes across the center back and snaps. The sleeves criss cross at the top and there's a flouce around the edge. It has a high waisted style, you will need a cummerbund or sash for it. The top layer of the skirt has a Van Dyke hemline trimmed with narrow ruffles. It has a few tiny holes under one arm, seam is opened about 1 inch and some hooks or eyes need to be secured. There are some scaTtered pin holes around the waist and a small mend where it looks like the sash was attached and the blue binding around the neck is frayed in one place. It measures 32 inches around the bust, waist/midriff is 27, hips are 35 (this is the lining the dress is wider), across the back shoulder is 13 1/2 inches and it's 50 1/2 inches at the longest point. Very good vintage condition.

To me, it's not the dress itself that is spectacular, it's all about the fabric. Those embroidered flowers on the net background look lovely.
