This exquisite Edwardian gown, custom made in Paris for a member of the family of Commodore Perry, exhibits all the fine hand finishing that you should expect in an expensive gown.

The gown is fashioned from very fine sheer batiste and is completely hand embroidered with high-relief, padded satin stitch.

The long trained skirt is beautifully scalloped, following the pattern of the embroidery.
