Where do I start with this rare & precious gem. It’s a bride dress from the flapper 1920s era. It’s entirely handstitched. Even the broderie anglais fabric itself is handmade, not machine stitched. This is so rare, I’ve only ever seen this on a shirt, never a dress. Joining each panel is handwoven lace. Beautifully made & in beautiful condition, It’s transparent down to the hip line which is lined with muslin underskirt hemmed with wider lace the same as that on the dress. The top layer of the skirt has a zigzag hemline with the underskirt lace showing through. The handwork in this is astonishing & would have taken many months & made for a brides special day. It’s in excellent condition. Preserved beautifully & very wearable. It would look great with a a full length tulle skirt with train underneath it. The dress features a small posie of flowers to one side. Size S (measurements imply a larger size but this is meant to sit loose on the body) Bust 35″ (best for 32-34″) Waist 35″ Hips 37″ Length 40″ 1920S Handstitched Broderie Anglais & Lace Bride Dress
