An item that has been previously worn. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller notes: Good Antique condition. There are some old repairs and I think the cuffs have been replaced. But still strong enough to wear and displays very well. I am selling antique / vintage costume and as such they have had a previous life and may have the odd repair or flaw.
Gender: Girls' Material: Cotton
Decade: Pre 1920 Brand: Entirely hand made
Look: Edwardian - 1900s Origin: England
Main Colour: White Use: Re enactments, Costume Drama, Collector,
Vintage Type: True Vintage Embroidery: Whitework

A really lovely all original Edwardian young girls dress. made in fine slightly sheer cotton with beautiful embroidery down the front and back bodice and around the shoulder capes. I think the cuffs have been replaced at some point, perhaps they became damaged, but the  cuffs on the gown do match the dress well. There are also some old repairs. These do not worry me at all because they are part and parcel of its history. It is over 100 years old and I think entitled to the odd repair !   

These dress for the older child are rare to find because they would be more prone to damage with wearing and play, than the little baby gowns. This one is now perfect for stage or re enactments or as a decorators item in a period room. Or,  one for the collector of fine antique baby and childrens costume.

I have put an old pink silk satin ribbon through the ribbon slots and although not the origianl ribbon I thought it looks lovely. Tiny carved Mother of Pearl buttons do the dress up at the back. pin tucks to the skirt. 

it measures 80 cms (28 inches) shoulder to hem. 28 inches around the chest, but to allow for the drape and gather I would say 26 - 28 inch chest. If you require more measurements please let me know. It looks as though it would fit an 8 - 10 year old, but children vary so much in size and height today that I can only guess. 

My postage charge allows for packaging, excess after packaging will be refunded to the buyer. They do not included local taxes or import duties, these are the responsibility of the buyer.

Due to recent missing parcel I will only send International Signed for, items over £20 in value. This protects both buyer and seller. 

Thank you for checking out my auction
