Gorgeous antique 1900s light pink silk Edwardian afternoon dress featuring a lace trim dagger collar neckline and long bishop sleeves accented with lace trim openings! The flowing nature of the silk creates such an angelic quality about her. She's styled with a blouson style bodice with a vest overlay trimmed in scalloped lace with the lace dagger collar extending down into diagonal points and a short back lace shawl collar. A partially attached silk band encircles the waist adorned with double bows that snap into place at the center front. The cascading asymmetrical ankle to floor length skirt features pleated flap extensions that flow in fluid waves with a rolled hem. Underneath the skirt is a sheer cotton under skirt with the most beautiful scalloped embroidered lace at the hem. The bodice is fully lined with thin sheer cotton and there is a wide grosgrain waistband with two hook/eye closures at inner waist. The dress closes down the back of inner cotton bodice and skirt with hook/eyes along with some snaps at waist area, skirt and vest of silk over dress.
