Perfect Edwardian Easter Dress


From the seller:

The most beautiful antique victorian sheer printed gauze two piece gown.  Pretty pink roses with green stems and leaves. Ruffles along the bottom of the skirt's hem, along the collar in tiers and and the cuffs.  Romantic balloon sleeves.  Ruffles are trimmed in pink silk ribbon.  Ruched waist, sleeves and along the neckline.  Bodice is lined in white cotton.  So rare to find a great print like this from so long ago.  
Some slight discoloration in a couple places.  Small tear on bodice, and on skirt.   
Bust: 30" 
Waist: 22" -- has a lot of fabric on top of interior corset so can be worn if a bigger size
Shoulder to shoulder: 24" 
Sleeve length: 19 1/2"
Bodice length: 17" 
Skirt length: 39"


From Me:

1904 Fashion Plate

Just like the gown in the fashion plate, this extant one as the quarter length billowing sleeves, the ridiculous but lovely ruffles around the shoulders and neck, and does not have the mock turtleneck neckline that we typically find in the 1890's/1900's. I love the rose print and just how spring this dress is.
