1950s Rare Red Lace Hardy Amies Dress

Rare, red lace couture level dress from the infamous Hardy Amies. This dress is absolutely beautiful and the lace work is astounding. It is hand made lace on a fine netting all done to create beautiful, feminine flowers. The lace lies over a second layer of red net and then there is a full under skip built inside as well. The skirt is fairly full and gives the feel of a fuller skirt with it's gently widening A-line silhouette. The bodice has a pretty silk chiffon edging in a sweetheart bust line. I love how the lace finishes in a scallop at the bottom and a delicate and pretty layer of silk chiffon circles under it all the way around the hem. It has it's original belt that finishes the dress with a pretty bow and even that is made of lace! Museum worthy and in great condition! Item# DD930
