C.1905. A rare item of Edwardian lady's costume, a swimming gown! This lovely costume is made out of a royal blue cotton with white trim. Still has it's original button on the skirt
and all it's origial buttons
. It doesn't look like it was ever worn, but the skirt does have very light fading to the front edges and a little spot fading at the back
, not as light as the camera flash makes them out to be. Part of the white trim of the skirt has a little staining from the dye running sometime during the past 100 years.
Would fit a height of up to 5'6"- 5'7". Shoulders
measure 15", Bust is almost 40". Waist on the costume measures 38" but the waist on the skirt measures 33". Length 39".
