For your protection & mine, my work station is cleaned & sanitised daily. I practice constant hand washing. And I will return to three times a week once things are better.Description, history & general age issues. Are you ready to go a real party? Gazing upon this beautiful Grecian Influence Edwardian gown, you can just hear Leonardo Dicaprio's famous words from James Cameron's TITANIC. Honoured to present this special, one of a kind gown in light of the Titanic Anniversary this month. I tried to capture her lovely bead encrusted overdress for the camera as best as possible.
The main under dress is a typical Edwardian Olive green, satin smooth taffeta like gown with gorgeous lace tiers. Adorning the lower skirt which end with three golden medallions on both the front & back of the gown. These medallions are trimmed out in brown floss. Dripping from each set of medallions are brown & gold floss baubles. The pompadour net lace beaded over dress is the showstopper here.The pompadour beaded bodice covers the entire. Upper bodice, waist & arms. The pompadour then parts ways to either side of the gown hanging in endless dripping gold net. Dripping with a floral shower of beading. Among this endless cluster of artful beading are trim sprays of silver threaded vines.
Actual gold & actual silver thread. Some of the other sprays consist of what looks like copper, some like gold. Wouldn't it be wonderful to know if that is the case here? I have no way of truly testing the threads responsibly & professionally.
There are soooooo many beautiful, typical Edwardian colours represented in the beading. That I ran out of room in my colour description list above. Ill let the photos do the talking. Note: Some of the beads & baubles fell off during the photo shoot & will accompany the gown in a ziploc bag. Note: My mannequin has a rather large bosom so I wasn't able to bring the upper back closes properly.I did not want to. Stretch or pull the net. I notice here & there where there may be beading missing but I cannot say that for certain as the gown may have been. A custom work of beauty nearing completion. The the very base "V" tip at the hem of the right side panel is folded over. Possibly to protect the ends against tearing or to accommodate the wearer's height. The left side base"V" at the hem has. Came out of it's hem & hangs fully. So the new owner will need to fold it over & adhere with a few careful stitches or. Take out the hem of the other & let both hang fully.
I'm having a hard time finding holes in the gold net. I know I came across one. Fingertip hole near some trim, maybe in back but I cannot find it again. So, there may be some small holes, maybe not but I'm certain. There are some loose, hanging beads of which I tried.
The interior olive green sleeves are a different fabric than the main gown, newer. In my professional opinion, this gown. Was meant to be worn without the sleeves & some one added them in for either modesty purposes or to protect the gold. Net beaded sleeves which make good sense. The last row of lace on the main gown is lighter than the upper tier & may have been added on at a later time.Underarm netting intact no rot. Interior newer olive arms intact. The overdress alone is worth a fortune in itself. The net is so encrusted in beading & thread sprays that it has some weight to it. I've done my best to describe her to you.
It truly is hard to see everything as there is so much art going on in this gown. I had another person view & overlook the gown & they also are hard pressed to find issues. Gown closes down the back. I believe most if not all interior & exterior closures are present.
Im having a difficult time seeing the eyes. On the beaded overdress so I may be missing one or two. There is some fraying on the raw edges of the interior seams.I'm not certain of the exact type of fabric on the main gown but I can say it is strong & intact. Oh, and before I end.....
