Classic Teen's Era Pink Dress

From the seller:

A pretty 1912 rose leno weave silk and cotton blend Edwardian dress. The dress is lavishly decorated with dark rose silk soutache trim. The dress has a deep V shaped neckline. The bodice is partly lined with pink silk around the neckline and the edge of the sleeves. The skirt is designed in the hobble fashion. The back has a narrow attached train that is decorated with dark rose satin medallions. The skirt is unlined. The dress has a back hook and loop closure. The dress is in very good and sturdy condition. There is no underarm discoloration. There are 2 slightly larger then pencil tip size holes on the back of the bodice. Bust 34 Waist 28.

From Me:

LOVE that back hem trim accent. No one would think to do something like that today.  Probably about 1913/1914.


  1. A bunch of us recently made a dress in this style from the recently released Butterick #6093 pattern. This is a beautiful dress with the soutache and gives me some more ideas. :)

    1. If you remake the pattern using this as an inspiration, let me know! I'd love to see it.
