Teens Era Summer Dress

From the seller:

This 1910s dress is likely from about 1913. It is made of a light weight, sheer cotton fabric and embellished with lace and pintucks. The lace panels are a gorgeous woven fabric that is "lacy", not lace. There are hooks and eyes for closure in the back. I added a blue ribbon sash for you to see how it was probably styled in it's day. I just love the details on this dress! It could be used as a wedding dress if you were looking for something very unique.

It's very beautiful and delicate, but there are some condition issues due to age - I have pictured the most obvious flaws. There are a few holes, mostly corresponding to brown spots. Its a little bit yellowed and you can see some evidence of that in the picture of the back of the dress. It's not bad, though, and does not detract from the beauty of the dress in my opinion. I am happy to send more pics if you like.

It's a rare piece of history I'm sure you'd be proud to own. It's wearable but you must be careful when putting it on an taking it off because the fabric is delicate and could tear easily.
