A beautifully made lace over dress with intricate, extensively beaded embroidery throughout the bodice and skirt---the antique-style details on this are absolutely gorgeous! Sheer sea green net with extensive embroidery and beading throughout the entire dress from the gored high-waist skirt to the Edwardian-style bodice. Beautifully trimmed and finished! Pulls on over the head, requires a slip worn underneath which is NOT included--this listing is for the lace dress only. Vintage styling with pristine new condition, even has a packet of extra glass beads still attached. Be sure to view the video so you can see some of the gorgeous beaded lace motifs close up! So delicate and pretty---a perfect vintage tea or garden party dress, or even a summer wedding dress or to wear to events like the Gatsby Summer Afternoon.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.
I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties! I'm meticulous about clothing in general so I make quite sure that every piece of vintage clothing I sell is clean, fresh, pressed and in excellent wearable condition---I do not use any fragranced or heavily-chemical products in caring for/cleaning garments and they are carefully stored in climate-controlled closets at all times except for when I am photographing them for listings.
Measurements of this wonderful dress are as follows:
Bust max: up to about 36".
Raised Waist: 34"
Length is 48" from shoulder to hem. This just fits perfectly on my size 6/8 mannequin (36-26-36), so I would recommend no larger than that size.
Condition: Pristine, like new, no stains, spots or rips/holes, clean, I cannot find any issues.
Tag is "Papillon"; tag still attached to a little bag of extra glass beads
Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
