Edwardian Burgundy Dress

From the seller:

A fetching 1900-1905 burgundy silk and silk brocade dress. The bodice has a high neck lace insert that has a small pink and white floral print. The lace is laid over a cream satin base. The edge of the sleeves are decorated in the same manner. The front panel and the skirt hemline are trimmed with silk brocade fabric that has a circle and small leaf pattern. The bodice is lined with cotton and the dress has a front hook and eye closure. The dress is in good condition. There are no splits or holes in the fabric. There are circles of underarm discoloration. There are small age spots on the lace on the sleeves. Bust 35 Waist 26 Skirt length 42. Antique clothing if for display and should not be worn.

From me:

Because it doesn't have the pigeon front and it has that neat fold and button detail on the bodice, I'm putting this later than the seller by a couple of years. Probably 1907/1908.
