This lovely Edwardian gown is made from silk crepe and is trimmed pleated tulle and crinkled crepe. It has an overskirt that goes to deep points close to the hem. The underskirt is the same fabric all the way to the waist.
IT has wide borders of the crinkled silk. It's lined in silk taffeta, the bodice is boned, it hooks down the back. The skirt lining has a wide knife pleated ruffle around the hem. The lower sleeves are pleated tulle with bands of the crinkled silk.
Overall the dress is excellent. One lower sleeve is loose and needs to be sewn back on, one of the bands down the front edge is loose, missing the belt/sash. It measures 36 inches around the bust, waist is 27 3/4 , it has dolman sleeves, so across the back is roomy, hips 46 and it's 60 inches long. Belonging to Margaret Draper, the Princess Boncompagni.
