Fabulous Edwardian Pink Dress
From the seller:
This lovely Edwardian dress is made from a very light weight wool challis in deep pink. It's trimmed with black and has a very beautiful ivory lace yoke and collar. The yoke and collar are excellent. The wool has some small holes and scattered spots, the belt is replaced, the yoke and collar are excellent, there's wear on the covered buttons,the collar has some small holes and the edges need to be hemmed, hook-eyes loose or missing, patches were put under the arms, they look ok, some poorly done seams, etc. Overall the dress is sturdy enough that it could be worn, but should be repaired first or use for salvage. It measures 34 inches around the bust, across the back shoulder is 13 1/2, waist is 22, hips are 40 and it's 58 inches long. As is
And this one is going in the need to make pile of ideas....
Both fashion plates are from 1908. The one on the left has a red dress with buttons down the side like this pink one. The one on the right has a lilac/bluish/no idea what to call that color dress that has a similar bodice to the extant one.
