"I clambered over the tall chain link, groveled underneath the bitter barbed-wire, to finally reach your open, picket fence gate."
This is a one of a kind dress created with unique, handmade, mint condition vintage cotton doilies. I carefully hand stitched them together using strong embroidery thread. It features intricate lace detail, including angelic flutter sleeves and trim on the back that resembles wings. It also has a ribbon running through the collar that can be untied in the back for adjustments. This dress has an elegant and delicate look while still being vivacious and spirited. It could be worn as a crowning piece for a unique wedding, or more casually as a fun party dress. It has a nice, subtle range of colors including white, antique white, ecru, and cream. It is pictured with a nude colored slip underneath that is not included in the purchase. This dress has an antique, classic, old-timey design that is a constant reminder of heritage, sustainability and preservation.
This should fit Small, Medium, and some Large sizes.
Model is a Medium (U.S. size 4-8) for a perspective on fit.

This dress must be hand washed and laid flat to dry. For storage I recommend folding and placing it on a shelf, instead of putting it on a hanger.
