- The cotton fabric is thin and sheer and is seen here with a white cotton slip underneath
- Matching jacket included with the same delicate lace and embroidery
- High lace collar
- Button and eyehook closure in the back as well
- 3/4 length sleeves
- There is a very sweet story of the woman who wore this dress in 1912 on her wedding day
- The photo you see (in picture #4) has been printed and included with the story behind the dress
Both the dress and jacket are in very good condition for their age.
Both have been organically dry-cleaned and are ready to wear.
Please see the last picture for the few tiny flaws:
There are a few very small rust spots and pin holes, a spot approximately 0.50" on the left front of the jacket and a few very light marks on the bottom front and back near of the skirt, which may lighten with additional cleaning.
Otherwise, all buttons and eye hooks are secure and there are no rips, tears or major marks.
A truly lovely piece of history.

Helpful purchase information from Frock Me Vintage:
Thanks for looking at my collection of vintage treasures.
For those that are not seasoned vintage buyers, I do take time to check each I item, however bear in mind that vintage items are used and may have signs of previous wear.

As a guide, I will also give the vintage condition on a scale of poor to excellent.
I give the measurements of the item laid flat and doubled. I also give a UK current size equivalent but this is an approximation only. Please compare the measurements with an item of your own or do ask for any other measurements you may need.
