Late Teens / Early 1920s Cotton Lawn Dress | S
Era: c. 1915-1920

Fit note: while some measurements seem generous for a small, this dress has a smaller shoulder/arm area and is intended to be styled loosely (as shown on a size 6 form), and must pull on without any closures.
waist at dropped seam: 36” (add the belt at the natural waist for definition as shown)
bodice length: 20”
skirt length: 49”
Feather light sheer white cotton. The bodice with curved collar, pintucks and pretty notched elbow-length sleeves. The skirt with pleat and openwork embroidery accents, and wide hem. Original matching tie belt.
condition: very good. freshly laundered and ready to wear. faint yellowing to underarms (dress was soaked, but I did not spot treat these). 1” mend in the lower skirt front. two minor areas of wear to back skirt that have been stabilized with invisible fusible to help prevent further wear. one faint mark to lower skirt.
