This enchanting vintage 1920s cream lace bridal dress is exquisitely feminine with an etherial, romantic feel. The dress is made up of delicate silk lace in soft cream, with a subtle glossimer effect that shimmers slightly in the light to capture the swirling floral motif of the fine fabric. The neck sweeps across the breast bone in a gentle curve, accentuating the collar bone. The sleeves fall over the shoulders finishing just above the elbow, and have a pretty understated frill where the fabric finishes in a hand stitched seam. The dress falls to ankle length, where the fabric is doubled up to create a wide 6 inch hem, giving weight to the featherlike lace. It is a simple shift shape, typical of the era in a truly bohemian style. Tiny gathers at either side of the hip create a playful movement in the skirt. This exceptional piece is in beautiful condition, and would best fit US size 4 - 8, UK size 8 - 12.
