Late Edwardian Lace Dress

From the seller:

An exquisite 1912 Edwardian net lace and Irish lace dress. The net lace has a small floral stripe pattern. The bodice has a high neck insert. The bodice is decorated with Irish lace flowers and crocheted balls. The waist is trimmed with ecru silk and back streamers. There is a row of Irish lace flowers on one side of the skirt that extends from the waist to the hemline. The skirt is trimmed with crochets balls and a large ecru silk ribbon bow. It has a long back sweep. The dress is lined with silk and has a back hook and eye closure. The dress is in very good condition. There are two dime size holes in the high neck insert and splits in the lining under the arms. There are no other holes or age discolorations. Bust 32 Waist 24 Front skirt length 38 Back length 49.

From Me:

This is earlier than 1912, based upon the waistline and neckline. You can still see a hint of that pigeon breast as well. Maybe 1907?
