Edwardian Pink Ball Gown

From the seller:

This is a vintage Victorian era 1880s pink silk ball gown. It is made of pastel pink silk and white stripe floral damask brocade fabric, with ecru lace trim cuffs. The one piece ball gown has a corseted lace-up back, which is missing the lacing, short puffy sleeves, a side panel drape, bustle back long train skirt and is fully lined with stays boning inside. Great for Design!

Condition: Vintage As-is Fair Condition. Frayed Stained Underarms. Stain on Front Side Skirt Drape. Frayed Bottom Hemline Skirt. Label: None

Measurements: Front Length 50" Back Length 68" Bust 28" Waist 22"

From Me:

I know the swag over the front does look Bustle Era-ish, but the sleeves, lack of bustle, and the rest of the styling all scream 1900's.
