ca. 1915 Tea Dress

By Jennie Chancey


This beautiful tea dress was sold on eBay by USVainen, a seller (sadly, retired) whose knowledge of vintage fashion was astounding and whose descriptions were delightful. This seller graciously agreed to let me share her images and words on my site, and I think you’ll enjoy them as much as I did! The description is detailed, so to read it in its entirety, you’ll need to click on the link at the end of the opening remark. Well worth the reading!

1915 Hand Embroidered Lace Tea Dress. This is a wonderful tea dress that was hand embroidered and detailed (as were so many dresses from the World War I years). This dress is very strong and sturdy and could be worn daily. Even nicer, it has very clean and modern styling that would look very nice as regular wear at the office or home. The lace was patterned with a very lovely art nouveau pattern of swirls and flowers at the bottom. Click here to continue the description!
