Product Details

Incredible antique 1910s Edwardian lawn dress in white cotton featuring such a variety of handiwork that one really does need to take a moment to appreciate all her beauty. This Edwardian antique dress features folk inspired eyelet design, Irish crochet lace trim, crochet covered decorative buttons along the back (has hooks and eyes for closure), broderie anglaise on the bodice, and a high neckline. Small patch repairs have been carefully done on the dress, there is one small spot (see photo) not patch repaired. An exquisite dress to wear for your wedding day with a crown of dried flowers in your hair as you walk down an aisle laden with petals.

Sustainable Clothing Care

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.

  • Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
  • Wear your garments more than once before laundering
  • Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
  • If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
  • Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
  • Spot clean garments immediately
  • Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
  • Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
