Girl's embroidered cotton dress, c.1910
This charming young girl's dress is as pretty today as when it was made a century ago. Found in excellent condition, it was probably worn for a special occasion like a confirmation, and then carefully stored away.

The condition is excellent.
The under dress measures: 28" chest, 25" waist, 1and 41" from shoulder to hem.
