Teen's Era Summer Lace Dress
From the seller:
This lovely Edwardian tea dress is made from white cotton and is heavily trimmed with embroidery and insert lace. It buttons down the back and has elbow length dolman sleeves. The skirt is in gores with insert lace in the seams of the gores and there are pin tucks from the waist in the cotton panels. There's bands of various lace aroud the skirt with narrow lace ruffles. 34 inches around the bust, waist is 22, hips are 42 and it's 49 inches long. Excellent vintage condition.
I can see late Edwardian - 1910- but I think this is more likely 1911. Either way, a very lovely dress.
