Exquisite Antique Edwardian Lawn and Tea Dress. Made of the finest crisp Cotton. Dress features Hand Embroidery, French seams, pin tucks, Mother of Pearl Buttons and finished off with four rows of Ruffles. Original Belt was missing, so I've added a wide piece of Grosgrain Ribbon that ties in the back. Small tea stain on the lower right side of skirt. See picture. Cleaned, restored and hand Dyed in a Soft Sea foam Green Color. Pretty dress!

I am Pleased to Present my Collection of Fine Antique and Vintage Children's Clothing. Each item has been Hand selected by me. I have been collecting and Restoring Vintage and Antique Clothing for over 30 years. Each garment is carefully Cleaned and Repaired. I do all repairs using cotton thread and backing the fabric with other pieces of Vintage fabric. Slow weaving mends the way they used to back in the Day. I add Antique Lace Embellishments and Hand Dye each piece. I use vinegar to set color and several cold water rinses after that. I Love the process and I am Passionate about my work. Sustainable Fashion is a movement to foster change to the fashion Industry towards greater ecological integrity and social justice.
Care: Hand Wash in lukewarm water (preferably using non petroleum based soap). I recommend Laundress. Hang to dry! Steam or press if desired.
