Simple but Lovely Linen Teen's Era Dress

From the seller:

Lovely 1900's Edwardian gown in satin and fine thin wool. Front panel on skirt has moth damage,and you need a sliding snap on back of neck,but dress is very strong and wearable, great restoration,study or pattern.
Bust 34" Waist 20" Hip 40" length 57"

From Me:

1914 Fashion Plate

The bodice still hasn't fallen to the natural waistline and the skirt is also pretty thin. By 1915, the skirt fills out a lot and the bodice drops a bit more. In a couple of years, the bodice will start to drop below the natural waistline.
