1910s White Organdy Vintage Day Dress with Ruffles and Tucks SZ S

This is a lovely later 1910s dress, and fit for a wedding or party. It’s a sheer organdy dress in white with many pintucked details and a clever asymmetric overskirt that hides the skirt closure. The underskirt is organdy as well. The square necked bodice is softly fitted with elbow length sleeves and a side front snap and hook closure. The slip shown is a later piece. It’s a rayon 1950s with a metal zipper, but it will be included. We have shown this with a simple ribbon tied at the waist. You may use the ribbon or sash of your choice for a completely different effect!

Vintage 1910s Edwardian Blue Print Silk Dress 3 Pieces SZ S

This is a beautiful dress, although certainly not flawless. It’s a 1910 - 1915 printed silk dress in blue with net underlay and sleeves. These have pink and black ribbon trim, blue cord trim, and cream lace. Lovely. The bodice has a surplice front, crocheted buttons down the skirt front, ball fringe trim, and a wide sash with huge rosette. There are three pieces: the bodice with attached cotton underskirt that has a deep pleated flounce in the silk, an overskirt with the buttons and trim, and lastly, the wide boned sash with a huge rosette. 

Label: None

Over skirt: Waist: 26”, Waist to Hem: 35”, Hem Sweep: 80”.

Such a pretty hat! This one in copper toned silk satin with pale gold velvet band and edge. The soft crown is surrounded by two ones of ostrich feathers - a matching pale gold and a true blue.

Victorian Early 1890s Ivory Silk Damask Wedding or Reception Gown SZ XS

What a grand Victorian gown. I cannot state absolutely that this is a wedding gown, but it has the appearance of one and is certainly a very formal dress. We date this c. 1891 - 92. This is all one piece, with the back bodice attached to the train. The front opens with hooks while the skirt waist opens at the back with plackets at both the right and left side backs. The bodice has very pretty open darts at the front, modified leg-mutton sleeves and a grand train that descends form deep pleats. The modest V neckline and wrists are both trimmed with silk chiffon flounces. The bodice is boned with an interior petersham waistband. The front skirt is kept close to the body and legs with interior elastic ties.  The front hem has a pleated frill of the damask.

Label: none.

Size: Bust: 32”, Waist: 22”, Hips: free, Shoulders: 13”, Sleeves: 22”, CB Neck to Waist: 13”, Waist to Hem Center Front: 42”, Waist to Hem Center Back: 73”

Condition: Very, Very Good. There is one spot on the side back skirt as shown. The silk lining of the train has losses. The wrist frills are mounted by hand on top of the sleeve with a raw edge exposed, - there may have been trim here, but there are no threads or marks. There are slight armpit rings, hidden by the size if the sleeves.
