    Thought I'd share this lovely dress I found a couple of years ago. I've since seen one similar to it in an antique store. I think it might be a wedding dress? Would love some opinions on it's age, etc. It's entirely hand sewn, with hook and eye closing, and stays inside it. When I first got it, the fringe on the sleeves was off but I tacked it back on. It has a beautiful little train all edged in fringe, and it is SO tiny.

    Its in nice condition, you are right, it surely is a wedding dress, c. 1912-13

    That is quite pretty, and as usual, I agree on Jonathan's dating. I like the fringe detail - just enough to weight the layers for movement, but not as heavy as beading.

    Beautiful dress! I agree with Jonathan and Hollis.

    Thank you very much! I sure was excited to find it! :) It was balled up and thrown over a clothing rack in a second hand store, like it was some old rag. I got it for a mere 10 dollars.

    I'm going to go post another one. I found it with this dress and it's so tiny, I assume it was owned by the same little lady.
