Edwardian White Croque Dress Handmade Lace c.1900


This Edwardian dress is exquisite and original . The dress is white lawn cotton with handmade Belgian Lace extensively over all of the dress .( I can only display 5 photos but can email more upon request ) .
The neckline is made of lace with small cotton lace balls hanging ( one is missing) The sleeves are 3/4 mostly lace , the shoulders have pintuck pleats , the waist has a 1" lace around it and the skirt is stunning panels of lace . Some panels have daisies embroidered with cutwork and pintucks . These panels are horizontal. At knee length the panels turn vertical with pintuck pleats and wider lace panels . There are hook and eye closures up the back .

The condition is nice , no stains noticed , the lace is very nice . It does have an area of damage with a few small holes ( can't see with white petticoat ) left front side, lowest wide lace panel and lowest pintuck pleat panel ( see pic)

The dress was measured across and doubled while hanging : 32" bust/ 26" empire waist 13" below shoulder/ 16" sleeve/ 51" length
