Teen's Era Dinner Dress
From the seller:
Beautiful pink lace beaded and white chiffon cased pink gown with tassels and silk. Dating to the early 20thc. Definitive Edwardian styling. Back hook and eye closure, lined in pink with stays, long satin streamer at the back. Gorgeous white seed bead beading with satin band lower skirt, embroidered and couched detailing with row of tiny tassels. A fancy party dress with label "Jennie & Co, New York. Missing a few beads and the white chiffon casing is a bit grubby from storage, the satin streamer at the back has some vertical splits as does the satin band in skirt, uncleaned as found.
Measurements: 34" chest, 24" waist, 56" long from shoulder to hem in the front, 62" long in the back.
Most likely 1913/1914 based on the lack of fabric in the skirt. Ya know...I have some curtains upstairs that look like this dress....
