Mid Teens Era Party Dress

From the seller:

For sale is an antique or vintage pale green dress. It is hand-made of silk with cotton lace. It does have some damage, for example, material is wearing away on top of both shoulders, some small tears and discoloration/fading in folds. It measures 53" from top of shoulder to hem and laying flat, waist measures 15" across front.

From Me:

A lovely example of the mid Teen's era - 1915/1916.

The blue dress in the fashion plate has a very similar bodice and skirt shape - it's really only the lack of buttons and the sleeve length that is different.
