Embroidered tea dress embellished with Irish crochet, c.1905. Without the original boned underpinnings, the dress is comfortable and easy to wear. The soft feminine style and delicious detail will appeal to your inner princess. The design uses a textured assortment of machine lace with accents of hand-embroidered floral appliqués and handmade Irish crochet flowers (the unifying element of the design). I love the smocked shirring on the sides of the lower skirt.
