1920s Gossamer Chantilly Lace Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Unbelievable flapper dress made entirely of the finest, lightest french Chantilly lace. The first thing that will strike you when you open the package for this piece is how utterly unworldly this dress feels. It is unbelievably silky feeling and fine. If not for the beadwork around the neckline, you could probably pull the entire piece through a ring, as per the famous test for the finest of Chantilly laces. Its constructed typical flapper style - with a scooped neckline and tubular body. The skirt is tiers of scalloped edged lace all flouncing on top of one another and creating light and airy movement. Around the neckline is a string of jet beads that act like an attached necklace that ends in a pretty pendant. This also helps to weight the dress properly so its sits perfectly when worn. It's in mint condition and I really cannot describe the lightness and feel of the actual lace - there is nothing else to compare it to - its the only thing in this world that feels this way! Some fabulous girl would have spent hours upon hours upon hours to create this and it shows in every stitch. It is of museum quality and quite fantastic.
