Original 1920's dress created with authentic Victorian lace. Size Uk 14 (US 12, Eu 42)

Regular price £575.00 Sale

This unusual dress was created in the 1920's from Victorian era Brussels lace. It was handmade by a WW1 war widow from her Grandmother's lace, and dyed this unusual bluey grey as the convention of the time dictated one couldn't wear white for a second wedding. A true one off with a fascinating history.

The lace has been artfully preserved and could be re-modelled again. 

With a drop waist, cap sleeves and glass bugle beads on the bodice, this dress is typical of the period. Ideal for a Bloomsbury look!

Shown here with a blue slip, see the final image for a sense of the true colour without the slip. Other slips available from £50.
