1910 Maternity Dress

1910 Maternity Dress
Satin maternity dress. Unboned, loose-fitting long dress in a very good quality black silk satin, with ruched satin around the elbow length sleeves and across the edge of the high waisted yoke. The dress is not really very well made, lined with brown cotton, and was obviously not intended to be worn a great deal, maybe for only a couple of special occasions whilst pregnant. It would have been worn with lace under sleeves and a modesty vest.
