Incredible 100 year old vintage tea dress! Unbranded - Size: One size: regular - Burgundy - Vintage

£100.00

Product description

The most incredible vintage piece!
This gorgeous burgundy tea dress belonged to the donor's grandmother; she was born in 1895, married in 1919 and went on to have seven children!
It is estimated that she would have probably worn it either before or just after 1920, making this piece potentially up to 100 years old!
With some amazing floral applique details around the cuff, beautiful v-shaped applique around the collar, this dress is one of a kind.
The cut of the skirt centres around a unique triangle-shaped yoke, giving the skirt this beautiful, elegant drape.
The sleeves are equally as special; resembling a bishop sleeve with some slight pleating on the upper side and snap fastenings at the cuff.
With it being a vintage piece, sadly there do appear to be significant spotted stains on the front but they do not detract from the overall finish. We have not attempted to clean it due to the age and originality of the piece.

Approximate measurements:
Bust: 36cm
Waist: 88cm
Hips: 120cm
