Romantic 1930s Unlabeled Intricate White Lace Unlined Dress w Flared Full Lower Skirting

This striking and beautiful thirties dress is made from a crisp white machine lace that is pieced together in the most beautiful way. It is meant to skim over the body and highlight your shape without being overly tight. The bodice dipped into a V at the front and there's a pretty little gathering at the base of that V that meets an angled seam coming up from the waist. Straps covered in the same lace curve over the shoulder and down the back. The back is scoop slightly lower for a little bit of bear skin. The way seemed but it is cut a little bit more generously, and then the dress skimmed over the hips and widen out as it hears the ham. The skirts are magnificent. They are cut, so they are very full with a lot of fabric in them. If you lay out the skirt it's a full circle of lace. This means that when you walk you get a tremendous sense of movement around you that is beautiful. The dress is a single layer of lace with no lining underneath. So you do get transparency between the design of the floral flowers in the lace. You would either wear this over something nude or add a coloured slip depending on how daring you want to be. The work inside appears mainly to be by hand. It is truly a special piece and it might even make an amazing wedding dress for the bride looking for a non-traditional choice or as an alternative dress in a more extended wedding celebration. And of course it could also be worn to any event. Excellent condition 

Unlined and hooks to close down one side. Hand finishes throughout and in remarkable condition for its age. The lace does have some slight stretch and I put the range below. Perhaps the slightest tiniest bit of patina around the straps but for address of this age it is in excellent condition
