Lovely Spring Lavender Teen's Era Dress

From the seller:

Amazing old dress

Antique Edwardian Silk lavender Tissue over lace on the bodice

Many semi sheer layers of fabric create this wonderful creature

Their are many issues , holes , stains , spots

use it as a study design , the draping and construction are worthy and to be noted

take apart and use as a pattern

or Dolly ladies will get some beautiful fabric out of this for your doll clothing

this is all hand sewn

very small size

measurements are taken on the flat , so you double them

top across shoulders is 13" or 33cm

under arms across bust is 16" or 41cm

skirt waist is 12.50 " or 32cm

length of skirt is 40" or 102cm

From Me:

GAH! We do not take apart antique clothing. We do not use them as cutter pieces unless they are completely trashed. This is NOT completely trashed. It still looks like a dress. Even is someone did rip it in half!

I don't believe the trim is original but the dress is from about 1914.
