Not like the others

This photo from the Red Velvet Album is not like any of the others. It is a Real Photo Postcard that has been trimmed to fit into a CdV opening. The dress of the subject is definitely 20th century. Makes me wonder if this is A. one of the girls as an adult or B. offspring of someone pictured. The dress is a lovely example of Edwardian fashion – light weight for summer, lacy, pleated on the bodice with the pigeon breast look.

    That is a pretty dress. There are at least three families in the album. I would suspect this is a much younger generation than those that sort of had names on them.

    Her dress is summery! I like all the lace and the ribbon trim pulled trough the eyelet or what is similar to eyelet:)
