Don’t come across too many 1910s house dresses.

Fabricated in a wonderful off-white colored cotton dobby with purple and grey stripes

Contrast purple cotton collar and sleeve cuffs

Flanged shoulders

Slightly surplice bodice snaps at an angle down the front with a hook and eye at the waist.

Decorative tuck extends to the hem below the skirt closure.

Bodice gathered into center front and back waist.

Angled waist seam,raised in back/ dropped in front, creates a slight pigeon silhouette on a proper fit. (she’s too big for the form)

Decorative tuck detail down center back skirt

Interior cotton band at waist seam.

Deep, 3 1/2” hem
