This is a one of a kind dress that I designed and created using uniquely beautiful, upcycled, vintage cotton doilies, some of which are handmade. I carefully hand stitched them together using strong embroidery thread. It features a fitted sheath design with a flowering mermaid tail hemline. It comes with a hand made, heart shaped doily, that I sewed two safety pins onto the back of, that makes an adorable centerpiece for the neckline. This dress has artistic, asymmetrical sleeves that accent the vivacious, circular doily that is placed slightly to one side of the body. This dress has an elegant and delicate look while still being lively 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 coffee dyed vintage slip underneath that is included in the purchase. This dress has an antique, classic, old-timey design that is a constant reminder of heritage, sustainability and preservation.

SIZE: This would best fit U.S. Sizes 4,6,8,10 but should also fit smaller sizes and possibly up to a size 12 as this material has some stretch. The model is 5'6" and usually wears a size 6 for a perspective on fit. The model also needs around 2" heels to keep the dress above the ground.

NOTE: The slip that is included is a smaller size, probably a 32. If you are in need of a larger one I could coffee dye one of your own, or find a suitable replacement. Just let me know.

MEASUREMENTS of the dress:
Bust: 34" (87cm) not stretched, easily stretches to 38" (97cm)
Waist: 32" (82cm) not stretched, easily stretches to 36" (92cm)
Hips: 38" (97cm) not stretched, easily stretches to 42" (107cm)
Length from top of shoulder: 55" (140cm)

Note that this dress should be worn and handled with care. It is made with delicate vintage doilies that are in excellent condition, but it is still a fragile work of art. It should be carefully hand washed and laid flat to dry. For storage I recommend folding and placing it on a shelf or in a drawer, and not hanging it on a hanger.

We offer lay-away plans and are convo friendly.
