Edwardian Chiffon Robe de Style with Scrolling Embroidery, 1910s

About

With snug bodices and wired hip panniers, Robes de Style struck a happy medium between the highly-ornamented gowns of the Victorian era and the slinkier drop-waist dresses of the Jazz Age. This one incorporates scrolling 2-tone silk embroidery to add further interest to the dress itself, which is a shade of citron seldom seen during the Edwardian era. Sleeveless wide neck Robe de Style with chiffon ruffles around neckline and arm holes; three tiers of additional ruffles at each hip, the topmost of which is backed with a flexible step-in wire stay for jutting pannier effect. Piped neck and waist seam; left side inset split with 6 snap closures. Unlined. fabric: silk chiffon, silk floss noteworthy: gently dry clean only when absolutely necessary; otherwise air inside-out immediately after wearing alterations: invisibly repaired chiffon where necessary condition: good with two small areas of darkening at front center skirt, faint mark on front bodice, and loss of contrast edge stitching and faint discoloration on right hip ruffle (see photos) measurements: neckline opening: 10 ½” shoulders: 13” edge to edge, not including 3 ¼” ruffle bust: 34” waist: 30” hips: 46” (measured around hip panniers) bodice length: 17” from shoulder, 10” from underarm skirt length: 35” total length: 52” from shoulder, 45” from underarm sweep: 55” label: no label present, but (illegible) couture tag still present at inside rear neck size: no size tag present; comparable to modern size extra small
