Silk/lace skirt with back train, c.1905
The skirt is gracefully shaped with flared panels to be smooth over the hips and full at the bottom. Romantic Edwardian skirts with back trains are perennial favorites. This one would be perfect for a wedding skirt.
It is fashioned from ecru silk broadcloth and is trimmed with beige machine lace inserts. The ruffled hem flounce, deeper in back, is trimmed with three rows of wide tucks. The skirt closes in back with concealed hooks.
The condition is excellent and wearable.
It measures: 27" waist (can be let out), 48" hip, and 42" center-front length (longer in back).
