Fabulous workmanship and detailing. Entirely handsewn with couture accents.

Gorgeous Edwardian dress well worth restoring.
Overall good condition with the following exceptions, underarm netting discolored, one very small area of discoloration on lace, scattered holes and tears on front of dress near hem comprising an irregular area of about 9" X 5", another area of scattered holes approximately 5" X 4.5" on right hip midsection, one irregular area of discoloration on front middle section approximately 3" X 1" at widest/longest, skirt lining likely removed.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Merry Christmas. This dress is from about 1913/1914 based on the shape. The skirt shouldn't be puffed out quite that much but it is a good example of the era.
