Early 1900's Tennis Dress

This historical tennis dress is from the beginning years of the 1900's. (My apologies for the poor quality of the photo it was scanned from a snapshot.) The details are hard to discern, but the top of the dress is a bib-type layer with a high neck and lace edged lightweight fabric hangs over the sleeves which are made of light, partially transparent fabric. I love the hat -- it adds so much to the outfit. Note to self: do NOT wear a watch when modeling historical clothing.
