Titanic Era Dress











From the seller:

Vintage Edwardian Blue Chiffon Silk Hand Stitched Embroidered Panel LS Dress XS

This amazing vintage Edwardian aqua blue chiffon silk long sleeve dress has a hand stitched and embroidered front panel snap over bib and bottom. It has a left side hook and snap closure and is silk lined.

This dress is very delicate!

Estimated Size XS

Approx Measurements:

Shoulder to Shoulder - 15"
Shoulder Seam to Cuff - 21"
Underarm to Cuff - 16"
Chest - 32"
Waist - 26"
Length - 52"

This dress is very fragile and needs some TLC
It has been re worked under the arms and has slight staining
Fabric is torn in many places, especially shoulder due to hanging
In Otherwise Excellent to Near Mint Condition


From Me:
1912 Fashion Plate

The long pencil skirt with a bit of "fluff" in the bodice, were very popular from about 1910 until 1913.  This extant beauty has the dog leg closure and some rather fabulous embroidery.

  1. Ooooh! I love this dress! I adore the color, and the lines are wonderful. Too bad I've never in my life had the body to wear such an outfit. (Another reason to stick with bustle dresses. ;-) )
