Antique Edwardian BATISTE Garden Wedding Dress High Relief Embroidery Lace Net
In the early 1900's a young lady designed and hand assembled this dress..perhaps for her wedding or other special occasion. Semi-sheer batiste fabric with high relief padded satin stitch embroidery with fine lace netting for the cape/collar, sleeves and bottom of skirt. The bodice is gathered at the waist, pouter pigeon front, elbow length sleeves with ruffles and lace trim, lace insert in the back. The lace net cape/collar drapes over the shoulders, is constructed of two pieces of lace netting, attaches in the back and closes in the front with a snap. The front of the embroidered bodice overlaps and closes with snaps. Two of the embroidered floral designs were cut from the fabric and sewn onto the shoulder area. Lace accent on shoulder seam as well. Shirred waist with hook and eye closure (waist too small to close on mannequin) and opening on side with snaps. Bottom of skirt is scalloped with a piece of netting sewn on underside.
