"Cream Lace Leaves" Vintage 1930's Black Sheer Voile & Cream Lace Dress UK 14-16 US 10-12


Rendered in the most incredible fine black cotton voile and embellished with cream lace appliqués depicting falling leaves, this original 1930's dress is a beauty to behold.   

The V shaped neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line which is accented by gathered stitches which radiate along each yoke in soft pleats. The 3/4 length sleeves are accented by double pleated gathered seams along each external side of the cuffs, creating soft pleats above the hem. The elegant bodice, boasts soft pleats which radiate from the fitted waistline. The near full circle skirt, is set off by a bias cut, allowing for the length of the skirt to drape in soft pleats along the silhouette, completing this dress in an iconic and timeless design. This dress is sheer and may need to be worn with a dress slip to conceal ones modesty.
