Stunning antique silk Victorian gown. Gorgeous subtle champagne color that illuminates in the sunlight.
Empire waist, rouching , fringe, bows and train. The level of detail is incredible and hard to capture in allotted photos! Both hand and machine sewn.
The fringe detail through-out the dress was created by meticulously fraying each section of silk. The rouching detail in the front goes partway around. It stops at the sides where the stunning train drops from the waist in the rear.At the bottom of the train a large piece of hemp or other stiff fabric was added to keep the shape. The condition is outstanding with only a few notable stains. The largest on the left arm please see photos. The fabric is strong an stable. There is also staining on the armpits but not viable when hanging. Dating from the early 1900's perhaps late 1800's. Such an outstanding gown wonderful piece for collector, costume designer or anyone who adores having something so magnificent hanging as display! Please see photos for additional detail. From back of neck to. Armpit to armpit from back 14. Empire Waist to end of train 69. Empire Waist to hem in front 28. I do my best to accurately describe condition and point out major flaws, but c. Ondition is seldom perfect as one would expect from a 100 year old textile. Small marks and flaws should be. The timeworn look and signs of their unique history is part of what makes them so charming and special! Please ask questions before purchasing.
