Dress made of very sheer cloth from the early twentieth century

1915-1918

Women's dress made of very sheer cloth that is loosely woven of fine, ecru-color thread. The bodice has a square neckline with a black velvet yoke. Its shoulders back and front center are embroidered with heavy black and white silk floss, with heavy white lace across shoulders. The bodice is gathered to the waist, and has long, loose sleeves whose cuffs are decorated with black velvet, black chiffon, and the same black and white embroidery. There are two velvet buttons on each sleeve. The long skirt is rather narrow, and is comprised of the same material as the bodice. The lower half of the skirt has a wide panel of black and white embroidery, ecru lace, and black velvet buttons.
