Ask a question

An absolutely stunning dress that came to me from the Bear River Costume Museum in Nova Scotia, Canada. This piece is a vintage redux from an antique Victorian dress that was later styled into a Late 1920's day dress.

Details of this incredible collectible piece include:

♦︎ Café Au Lait Cotton Lawn Fabric
♦︎ Ivory Floral Embroidery Throughout
♦︎ Added Bobbin Lace Shawl Collar
♦︎ Deep Hemmed Short Sleeves
♦︎ Gathered Bodice and Skirt
♦︎ Slight Drop Waist
♦︎ Layered Skirts
♦︎ Added Metal Side Zipper
♦︎ Above The Ankle Length

This piece had been part of a museum collection for many decades and is in it's original condition. At Some Point in the late 20's the Dress was completely re-designed from an original antique dress. Lace Collar shows some repairs and skirt has some marks as shown is photo #5. This dress is a true piece of history showing the use of textiles from generation to generation. I am not certain when the zipper was added but it was definitely at a later date.

All measurements are taken with garment laying flat and doubled where necessary. Please allow ease and know your own measurements to assure a proper fit.


BUST: 41"

WAIST: 32"

HIP: 58"

SKIRT LENGTH: 31.5" (top of bottom waist to hem)
