Here is yet another example of a handmade vintage knockout!
So well made in every way!
No tags, I suppose it could be tailor made, but it’s giving homemade vibes..
Natural cotton poplin for the body of the dress..
A wonderful contrasting and perfectly complimented woven floral embroidered ribbon trim..
The bodice is fitted with darts and a square bustline..
Lace overlay at the bust and empire waist..
Puff shoulders and huge balloon sleeves with a button up gauntlet cuff..
The cuffs are overlain with lace and trimmed with embroidered ribbon..
The buttons made me gasp and squeal with delight and wonder..
They are hand stuffed buttons..
Of irregular size..
I just think this detail is so dear!!
The maxi length is accented with a crochet lace apron panel and a wide bottom ruffle..
Zips up the back with a metal zipper.
Very good condition..this dress wasn’t stored well and has an aged color to it..there are some underarm marks as well as rust marks on the bottom ruffle and apron panel hem..I’m going to take her home for a special soak..still a gorgeous dress, I’m hoping someone will love her despite her flaws.
