1911 Shocking Pink Dress

Another dress on display this past weekend was this pink dress.

The under dress is a shocking pink which is toned down with a white sheer over dress.

It is trimmed in piping and self covered buttons in the shocking pink, and with lace inserts.

Up close and on its own, it seemed a bit over powering but some how in a crowd and at a distance it is pretty special.  Unfortunately there was some major damage to the back of it which has been (rather badly) patched.  There are smaller moth holes further up so I wonder if there was not more chewing done on the bottom piece.1911 pink dress d CMC

The two medallions on the back are a bit funny!
