LC 1911 Dress

No. 3681


Pale Yellow


GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).
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.

  • Fabric Content: 100% Linen. Care Instructions: Dry Clean Only. Length: Approximately 49
