White muslin wedding dress (showing fall-front bodice construction and underdress), English, c. 1805-11. There is a hand written note in ink with this item: "India muslin wedding dress with neckline insertion, worn by my grandmother Hon Jane Elizabeth Wain?, daughter of Lord Headley of Agador, Co Kerry (Ireland) 1811. Lived at Lea Castle, Simmonsbath, Exmoor. Died in Rome." It also says "Wolverley House, Jersey." They probably had two residences.
Would be interesting for Pirate game day- reminds me of old school football mum corsages. Look into your husband´s closet and maybe you can find a colorful tie that is no longer in use. Pin it up with a beautiful brooch. Cool and different!
