Early Teen's Era White Dress


From the seller:

This beautiful evening gown is sadly in bad shape around the lace bodice which is badly torn apparently from age. The rest of the satin is in good shape although a bit stained around the train. I wonder if it rained the night it was worn.

From Me:

Not an evening gown. I doubt it rained - obviously the seller has never walked on the grass in a long skirt before. This dress is from between 1911 -1913.

    1. LOL! Very true! No hangers would be the best option but wire hangers are the most evil to these beautiful dresses.
