Day dress

(ca. 1908) This pink linen dress bears no makers label, but is likely to be made by a high end dressmaker of the sort employed for less important and less costly gowns. The centre front of the skirt is cut on the cross, giving a graceful hang to the fabric and the dress is trimmed with cotton braid and embroidered striped net. The gilet front adds to the fashionable pouched bodice shape of the Edwardian silhouette. A relatively understated garment, it was probably worn for summer activities.
