This inspired white Edwardian tea dress could have been worn to show social status, as many did in this era. The looser bust of this dress with the detailing towards the bottom show the silhouette and details regarding dresses of this time period as well.
In the – women often went back to earlier eras like the Edwardian’s for inspiration. I found this beautiful Catherine Deane wedding dress which is very much in this vein amongst the beautiful gowns of BHLDN. I would love this for my recital dress.
