Vintage 1920s Dress - Rare and Dreamy Beaded 20s Flapper Wedding Dress in Fantastic Condition with Beaded Alencon Lace and Pintucked Silk
This vintage 1920s dress is stunningly rare -a Gatsby era beauty that is in exquisite, sturdy ready-to-wear condition. The photos do not do it justice - I've taken some close ups that capture the detail of the beautiful, pure, clear seed beading, because my larger images simple doesn't show the reality, detail and dimension. I am certain that this dress was worn once for her wedding, and then, somehow, perfectly packed away - there is no tanning of the silk, no dryness or shattering. It
This ensemble is two pieces, first a simple slip, longer than the overdress, which provides a background for the exquisite beaded Alencon lace. This lace is so fine, so beautiful - it ois one of the most expensive laces in the bridal world, and for good reason. A scarf of the same lace is attached with a handmade flower at the right shoulder, and can be worn hanging, or, as it is likely intended - draped under the neck and over the left shoulder. Pintucked pleats make a cross on the upper half of the dress, six pleats running horizontally, and six vertically. This beautiful slips over the head and has no closures.

This dress is sturdy, clean and lovely. The flaws are so incredibly minor that I am truly amazed. The slip has just faint bit of yellowing at the underarms, and one little cluster of three VERY faint spots on the bodice - this is the underlayer, and not seen when worn. On the outerdress, I found two small, very clean breaks in the lace -these are so clean that they are better without being repairs, because the lace hangs so perfectly. Above the lace at the lower left, there is an area, smaller than a dime, that has six small, nearly invisible spots. You'll never noticed - when you wear this, it looks pristine. I absolutely adore it, and I think you will, too.
