CIRCA 1910-1920 OPULENT LADIES NET DRESS W/RAISED SATIN STITCH EMBROIDERY
CIRCA 1910-1920,OPULENT LADIES NET DRESS W/RAISED SATIN STITCH EMBROIDERY. A beautiful example of these lovely net lace dresses that were so popular during the early 1900's. This dress has the most lavish design, there are large raised satin stitch whitework embroidery throughout the dress with insertions of Filet lace. This dress stands out because ether is so much more embroidery. The dress I think could even be worn either way. There is a small opening at top with a small button at the back...what I like best is of course the level of workmanship and design but also that there are fine net ruched flounces at the back and sides which would have given the lady of the times much more ability to dance etc. Excellent in design and workmanship.A few minor openings but mainly there is so much work here, that I consider the dress in very good strong condition. A beautiful dress to wear or for the collector.
