Stunning soft cotton lingerie dress circa early 1910s, likely around 1911-1912.
These lovely dresses, often mislabeled now as "tea dresses," were called lingerie dresses or lingerie gowns during the era due to the fine cottons and lace used to make them.
You will also see these dresses referred to as "lawn" dresses, which isn't necessarily incorrect. Lawn is a type of smooth, high thread count cotton (it has nothing to do with parading about a lawn at a garden party).
This beautiful piece features wonderful insertion lace, crochet lace, pin tucks, and baubles on the sleeves.
Closures are down the back, with buttons on the bodice and hooks and bars on the skirt, off center to the left.
