    this is actually two pieces- top and skirt that join w metal hooks

    It's unfortunately not in great shape- lots of tiny holes. But is sure is neat!

    Don't hold me to it, because it is so hard to date something with just photos. but I think it might be Edwardian. Maybe a Childs Dress?

    here it is on the mannequin, it's def a woman's dress. Too big for her even. Such a weird bodice- the apron like thing on the back is weighted to hang as shown. A million little snaps and sequins on the netting at the bodice neckline.

    Also the sleeves are double layered! IMG_4112.JPG IMG_4115.JPG IMG_4118.JPG IMG_4120.JPG IMG_4121.JPG

    Now I may be leaning towards 30s home fashioned and they took old lace to make it.? This is a tough one I also want to say Edwardian, is the printed fabric silk?

    My first thought was 'Teens era, WWI era, and now that it is on the mannequin I think it even more so.

  8. I was thinking Teens also, now I see more of a costume? Or maybe pieces were added? The hooks and eyes look too new for this era

    I also wondered if it had been altered at some point, to make it more fancy.

    Yes the lace at the neckline may be there to replace a modesty panel or top that went with the dress?

    It looks to me like a dress from c. 1900-1902 that was completely recut and restyled in c. 1915-16.
