The textiles of this magical dress date from the turn of the century however it's design and construction was altered most likely in the 1970s. Made from a luxurious heavy linen you can't find today it has been entirely embroidered by hand with an eyelet lace design. The sleeves made of cotton net are all pin-tucked and fit trim and snug with a beautifully delicate lace cuff. Finished off at the neckline with some hand made crochet and you have a real wonder of mixed techniques in the construction of this dress.
