Edwardian Handkerchief Hemmed Summer Dress








From the seller:

Excellent condition for age. Bound seams, entredeux, lace up and down dress with very wide skirt.
Measurements: across back just under sleeve is 19 1/2". the waist has elastic. Relaxed it is 14" across. Stretched, the waist is 16 3/4"


From Me:

I am in love with the details of this dress. The pintuck diamonds, the insert lace, and that fabulous handkerchief hemline are all too beautiful together.  The sleeves give away the age of this one pretty well.  1905, most likely.
