Item Details

Exquisite early 1900's, Edwardian era handmade mixed batiste cotton and silk net embroidered lawn gown. Whitework embroidery and pintucks, such intricate handwork, silk net sleeves. Found in a trunk in Birmingham, AL unworn. A work of wearable, historical art. This was restored by Birmingham native Maryon Allen, who restored antique clothing for a living, after retiring from being a US senator. She died in 2018. Tag reads,"Cliff House Maryon Allen Birmingham, Alabama".

Would be amazing as a wedding dress.
