Summer of 1911.

She knows it happened.

If she'd been born a half century earlier, in an era of ocean voyages, letter writing, and well-to-do families from Charleston summering in Tuscany.

She's 18 years old, not yet aware of the effect she has on men.

Not entirely.

He sketches her, in this dress, drifting on the pond. They exchange secrets. So incredibly serious. A lifetime in a month.

She would never be able to explain any of it to her friends back in Charleston. The sketch he gave her would have to do.

The sketch, in fact, froze the moment, and her very nicely. Later, in fact, he became quite a famous painter. Of course, by then, nobody would be able to understand his paintings at all.

1911 Dress (No. 3681). Made from pure linen with soft cotton lining. Sleeveless with a squared neckline. Seven horizontal panels create a drop waist bodice. Bra keepers. Center invisible zipper with hook and eye closure. Lower calf length.

Timeless elegance. Imported.

Women's sizes: 0 through 20.

Colors: Lilac, Apricot.

Classic Peterman. Beautiful
So elegant and covers my no-so-attractive legs. Perfect for my niece's summer wedding. It is most stunning in the aqua. Unique and very flattering. In the Siize 8 that I bought, the dress fits more like a shift, with little constraint. I have just now ordered it in Size 6 which will no doubt render a more fitted silhouette. I will compare the two and send one back. As everyone knows, one's size varies widely in JPeterman clothes. To note also, is the unique neckline which allows a variety of possibilities for jewelry. Being on the shorter side at 5'4, it was stunning with a higher pump shoe. Lastly, since I will be in places where the bare arm is not appropriate, I paired it with a light, airy bolero and it is beautiful.

Wonderful look.
This dress is true to size and will make you look and feel like a million bucks. I have it in two colors. Try one, it's a winner.

Beautifully weighted and lined linen, and the salmon is truly lovely in color. I wish the structure was slightly more tucked at the waist, but that won't marr the 5-star rating for this summer dress. It is highly complimented.

Stunning Dress
The aqua colored dress arrived yesterday and it's simply beautiful, elegant and classy. It is true to size (maybe a hair snug on top) and with nude or tan heels it's a knockout. I can't wait to wear it to work or a dinner out - it's very versatile.

This dress is a perfect choice for summer events. It is fitted just enough that it shows your shape but not so tight that a warm summer evening will be uncomfortable. I love the longer length and the cut allows for just the right swish to add interest. This is a real winner for Summer 2016.

back to the good ole days
I love this dress even if the top is too big....I use a wide wrap leather belt with it and it becomes a stunner.

Very nice linen dress
This is a very nice linen dress. It seems to fit true to size. I ordered the lilac color, which is portrayed accurately in the picture.

Says summer
My pale blue 1911 dress makes me smile when I wear it. The lining feels good against my skin even on the hottest days. The squared neck is a nice variation in my closet. The linen says summer. I made it a 4 star not a 5 to remind us all that linen takes a little more effort than some other fabrics.. and if you are fanatical about FLAT linen, this might take a lot of ironing. I am just happy to hang it up until next time I need a boost from a dress.

Breath takingly beautiful!
I purchased the dress in blue. It is absolutely gorgeous. The way the dress drapes and flows is remarkable. Not only is it a beautiful dress, it is also comfortable and fun to wear.

What a beautiful dress.
this dress wears true to size. I wear it over a white JPETERMAN long sleeved tee-shirt for modesty. The dress is just beautiful. I wouldnt change a thing. Highly recommended
