Comments

a matching ivory lace linen and crochet ensemble consisting of a floor length, half length sleeved dress and a half length coat with long sleeves. Both items are made of a ivory linen base fabric, but they both have crochet panels and embroidery on the linen in the same type of lace-like pattern. The condition is good, except for dark brown staining along the hem of both the dress and coat. Besides the dark stains, there is some other lighter staining and discoloration and minimal disintegration.
