Rare Parade Dress & Sash

SOLD ON DEC 3, 2016 FOR: $6,875.00

Made of beige linen, with a diagonal sash in classic Suffrage movement colors. Excellent condition and ready for display. Interestingly, this sash is double-sided, presumably so the message could run across the back of the dress as well. After seeing the familiar photos of hundreds of Suffragettes wearing “uniforms” like this one at rallies and parades, it is amazing that only a small handful of these outfits have survived.
