1920s Style Dress - Lace Dress - Silk Lace - Black, Navy Blue - Bust 76-81 cm
1920s Style Dress - Lace Dress - Silk Lace - Black, Navy Blue Sensational black, midnight blue lace flapper style dress with lavish beaded fringe at the neck. This dress has been made from vintage silk lace and antique bead trim in the style of the 1920s, but has most likely been made much later.
The fabric is a vintage silk chantilly lace which is actually black, but threaded through with darkest blue silk thread, so it appears dark blue. The lengths of lace are very wide and have a scalloped edge. Three widths of lace have been stitched together by hand to make the dress, with the scalloped edge over lapping. A long fringe of black glass or possibly jet beads, with a very large bead in the centre, has been stitched around the neck. This fringe is also very old, possibly 19th century. The time at which this vintage lace and vintage trim were combined to make this dress is what we cannot be certain about. The dress is slightly A-line and is below knee length. Totally sheer, you will need to wear a slip underneath. This fabric is delicate and needs to be worn with care.
