antique 1910s Edwardian oxblood silk velvet gown

Hearken to Elegance Gown

$525.00

Recalling a time of fine manners and unparalleled beauty, you step out into the grand hall in this antique 1910s Edwardian gown in deep oxblood plum with individually hand stitched velvet dots. The soft silk velvet panels and silk chiffon flutter delicately as you brush shoulders with the other guests. The candlelight catches the glints of silver grey beading on your dress and for a brief moment you feel as if you're in a fairy tale. The orchestra strikes up your favorite song, and all at once, you find yourself being swept away on the dance floor.

sizing

- 55" length / 36"-38" bust / 16" bodice / 27"-29" waist / 15.5" shoulder / 23" sleeve length

- slightly pinned on to size 4 form

details

- dress has multiple hook and eyes and snaps along bodice and waist for closure, a dress that a lady would have needed assistance putting on (which further tells you this dress once belonged to a lady of considerable means)

- tear on silk velvet panel on lowest portion of dress, could be repaired by expert seamstress (one does wonder if this was caused from a night of dancing...?)

- other than tear, dress is in excellent vintage condition for age, but like most antique garments of this fabrication, should be worn with care

Our Products

Adored Vintage is an online women's boutique selling pretty and feminine vintage inspired clothing alongside vintage and antique clothing.

All of our modern styles are carefully selected from small indie designers.

When purchasing vintage, remember you are buying something preloved and preworn and normal signs of wear should be expected.

Due to individual monitor color settings, colors may slightly vary in person.

How We Measure Our Garments

We measure all of our garments in inches while the garment is laying flat, so some measurements you will need to double to get the circumfrence (applies to bust, waist, and hips).

A good rule of thumb is to compare the measurements to an item you already own that you like the fit of.

Buying Vintage

Vintage Clothing by industry standard definition are garments at least 20 years or older. Buying vintage means you are purchasing something that it is preloved and preworn so normal signs of wear should be expected. All of our vintage items product descriptions include a condition rating.

MINT - Like new. Likely never worn or used.

EXCELLENT - Shows normal wear expected for age, but nothing easily visible.

GREAT - Shows normal wear expected for age of garment, usually easily repairable and does not detract from wear.

GOOD - Has some obvious visual problems. Garment is still wearable and flaws can be repaired.

FAIR/STUDY - These vintage clothes may have several flaws but are still wonderful for study, repurposing, or drafting a pattern.
