Teen's Era Lace and Beaded Dress

From the seller:

An absolutely beautiful and elegant formal gown of the edwardian era. Gorgeous but fragile silk net lace with crystal beaded and pastel embroidery accents. The lace skirt was found separated from the bodice. This ensemble is delicate and should not be worn even after restoration because of the lace itself, which is delicate and will break. This gown must have been created for a young miss, as this is a very petite size. I am 5'-3", 87lbs and 5" wrists, very small boned, and the bodice was loose on me but my arms fit the sleeve. The over-bodice is lined with another net lace. The wrists of the sleeves has lovely crystal beaded dangles. **PLEASE NOTE: The whole bodice and sleeves DOES have separations and breaks. There are also breaks in the skirt panel. I am not able to post beyond 12 photos so please review all photos carefully. There are separations at the underarms and other areas. As found, as is.

From Me:

About 1912. I bet it was taken apart a few years after it was made to be remade and just never got finished - someone else's UFO pile!!!
