Antique 1910s Beaded Black Striped Cotton Day Dress

A beautiful piece of fashion history!  Lightweight, sheer black cotton with satin-finish stripes.  Shawl collar with a beaded and lace trimmed front panel bodice.  3/4 length sleeves with wide cuffs.  Slight empire waist.  Straight, flowing skirt. The bodice is lined with cotton.  The dress closes with layers of snaps and hooks-and-eyes down one side of the bodice panel and across the waist.  The waist measurements can be adjusted with the movement of a snap.
NOTE:  this lovely dress will require your favorite vintage slip as the skirt is sheer.

    Label:  none (probably homemade
    Fabric:  Cotton    
    Circa:  1910s / Late Edwardian

    BEST FITS:  L (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good - excellent.  The dress shows light, normal wear (especially considering it's age), with no specific issues to note.  Keep in mind it was homemade and thus may have slight irregularities in seams/stitching as would be expected, but, again, nothing specific to note.
