I call the next gown "cotton candy." We are now in the Edwardian period. This 1910 lingerie dress highlights the tall figure with front and back Point de Paris embroidery, lace and tucks below the yoke. Chic sleeves also display the tuck and lace insertions. The skirt is finished with a tucked flounce. This period concluded with the sinking of the Titanic and the beginning of the Great War in 1914.
The head was topped with an elaborate hat. Audubon Society was formed and laws passed to prevent the extinction of many birds. Wings, and sometimes entire birds were worked into hat designs. A well-dressed woman was never without her gloves, purse and a parasol.
The yoke of this beautiful lingerie dress front and back has Point de Paris embroidery and lace. Short tucks below the yoke. Chic sleeves display tucks and lace insertions. The skirt is finished with horizontally tucked flounce. Hat. Gloves. Purse. Parasol.
