Antique Edwardian White Cotton Tea Dress 1910 Embroidered Lawn Cotton S / M

This is an Edwardian era tea gown featuring beautiful floral embroidery on a lawn cotton fabric. This is a nice example because of its size - most of these are quite tiny, whereas this one should fit a medium size and could be used as a lovely wedding gown. The piece has a rounded neckline, flounce at either side of the bodice and elbow length sleeves. It does up the back with fourteen tiny mother-of-pearl buttons - one is missing but could be replaced as the buttons are hidden when done up. The neckline has no fastening at the back, but I suspect that there had been a hook and eye or button and loop. Otherwise, the photos should tell the story - please use the zoom tool for a closer look.
