Beautiful Victorian pure white lawn cotton embroidered gown with elbow length sleeves and high neck. The back of the gown is longer than the front to show off your shoes. There are several tiny repairs hardly noticeable except for one above the waist to the side measuring 1.5 cms as shown in pics, otherwise in wonderful condition. Measurements are chest 36 inches (91 cms) please note this gown has a blouson yoke and therefore the measurement suggests this gown is larger but it is a size UK 8-10. The waist is 22 inches (56 cms) with a 3 inch (7 cms) overlap to enable the wearer to enlarge. The length at the back of the gown is 58 inches (147 cms) and the front is 2 inches shorter ie 56 inches (142 cms). Shoulder to shoulder the gown measures 14 inches (36 cms). A wonderful example of history suitable for a bride or confirmation.
