Sweet Disorder Vintage
1920s Embroidered Cotton Lawn Dress
Utterly charming late 1910s-early 1920s era tea dress. Fine white cotton lawn with pretty embroidered flowers. Sweet shawl neckline, drop waist and tiered skirt. The most delicate hand-stitched ruffles edge the collar and cuffs of the sleeves. Tiny shell buttons on the back placket conceal hidden snaps. The skirt is decoratively pleated at the hips and the fabric is doubled at the hem for a clever tiered effect. The whole dress is expertly hand finished with tiny stitches. Excellent condition. A small, discreet period repair at each under each arm seam (see photo). A few tiny pinholes as with all dresses this age. Freshly washed pressed and ready to wear. My photos don't do this beauty justice. Even more beautiful in person.
