1930s Pale Blue Lace Ruffle Gown

This is a striking and beautiful thirties dress that is made from a pale blue machine lace that is pieced on the bias so that is skims over the body and moves where it needs to to accommodate and accentuate your curves. It is most striking for that beautiful cascade of ruffles that starts just under the waist and goes to the floor in ever widening strips of lace ruffles. Though originally meant to be worn at the back, the cut is so divine that you can literally turn it around and put both the plunge and the ruffle to the back as I have photoed it for you. The skirt widens as it nears the hem and creates a pretty and romantic line. The back dips in a V and there is no other ornamentation on the dress other then the ruffles. You could wear a nude silk slip under this and it will appear as if you have nothing on but a layer of lace or be more bold and use color underneath as contrast. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes with side snaps. The lace does have some stretch. There is the teeniest of fading to the lace on one side down the edge of the ruffles and across one shoulder but you don't see this when on. Priced accordingly. This has a belt in a matching lace that was not photoed but will be sent with the dress
