This is a one of a kind dress that I designed and created using unique, handmade, vintage cotton doilies. The entire dress is composed of handmade doilies, except for one, which is on the chest. I carefully hand stitched them together using strong embroidery thread, then reinforced it in key areas. This lends itself well to a variety of styles, including Victorian, Edwardian, boho, hippie, gypsy, and shabby chic. It can be worn with sandals for a beach wedding or with tall white victorian boots for a ceremony in an ancient chapel. It features a fitted design with a ruffled hemline in the front and a brush length train in the back. The belt has two pearlescent buttons underneath the front fold at the waist so that it can unbutton, making it easier to take the dress on and off. There are two slits up the back sides of the dress for ease of movement. This dress has an elegant and delicate look while still being unique, lively and spirited. It has a nice range of colors including white, antique white, ecru, beige 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 - 10. Please see dress measurements below. The model is 5'6" and usually wears a size 4 - 6 for a perspective on fit. The model is 5'6" and the back of the dress just barely touches the ground without heels on. The slip that is included is a size 36.

MEASUREMENTS of the dress:
Bust: 37" (94.5 cm) not stretched, stretches to 39" (99.5cm)
Waist: 32" (82cm) I can refasten the belt to make the waist smaller if you'd like.
Hips: 40" (102cm) can stretch some, too.
Length from top of shoulder: 55" (140cm)
Questions on fit? Just ask.

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 with mild detergent and little agitation. then 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.
