Beautiful peach silk dress circa 1908-1909.
A heavy silk faille (or similar) with many pleats and folds throughout, so the dress has a nice weight to it. Delicate lace collar and cuffs.
Fastens down the center back with hooks/eyes and buttons. Unlined.
Likely made for a young lady or petite woman. This is a beautiful piece that would be lovely for study, inspiration, pattern-making, or display.

+++ Condition +++
Condition overall is fair to good with some flaws to note:
- Missing multiple hooks and buttons
- Fading on a few parts of the skirt
- Scattered faint stains
- Small lace breaks in the collar
- Faint odor from storage
- Loose seams and stitches here and there
- Lace collar was lightly lined with tissue silk, but it has been removed
Best for study or display, though the silk is still very sturdy. With a few minor repairs if could be worn with extra care.
