#3650 - c. 1909 Edwardian Trained Battenburg Lace Gown with Gold Lame Trims! Think fast.. this gown shouldn't last long... it cries out to be owned by someone who will just adore it... and could be re-lined to be gently worn for your wedding (though I always suggest that you change into another gown for your reception!). Extremely minor lace breaks which you will need to inspect to find. Trimmed in wonderful gold lame all along hemline and high neck, as well as decorative flowers and hanging balls at sleeves and back! This was owned by a well-to-do woman, as this is a top quality, likely Parisian import, though only the local shop label remains. I can see Queen Alexandra in this, tiara and all! Measures: 34" bust, 25" waist, 58" long from shoulder to hem in front, 68" long in back. Excellent condition... though the taffeta lining is going, it's left on if you want it as pattern... but I make no apologies for this gown even with the lining issues. Most often you would find these gowns today with no lining left at all. The exterior is quite special!
